THE UP & DOWN is a new bike ride with lots to offer in the way of challenge, scenery, support and food. Come join us in our inaugural ride on The Cascade Siskiyou Scenic Bikeway, the first such designated route in Southern Oregon.

The ride is a total of 51 miles with 5100 feet of climbing on narrow, winding, low-traffic roads through spectacular oak savannah, across a shady plateau, and finally a dramatic, long descent with unparalleled views of the Bear Creek Valley and Ashland.

From Emigrant Lake, cyclists have a leisurely 5 miles before the road starts climbing in S-curves into the Cascades. Riders will enjoy a break and water stop a few miles up the strenuous 7-mile Greensprings climb. At mile 15, the rest stop at Tub Springs State Park will offer weary riders extensive refreshments and cold, clear spring water. Shade and picnic tables will entice riders to spend a few minutes reliving their recent exertions. Another rest stop at Howard Prairie Resort (mile 27) will be well-stocked with offerings to replenish the efforts of the morning so far. The resort features a lake with docks and sailboats, bathrooms, showers and even a store with soft-serve ice cream! Finally the climbing is over at the Dead Indian Memorial Road summit (mile 34), where we will offer a water break and encouragement before the final steep, winding, exhilarating descent.

The Up & Down is not a ride for the faint-hearted. Although only 7 miles, the Greensprings climb averages 7% grade and totals 2270’. The road is narrow with steep drop-offs and camera-worthy views. Having conquered the biggest climb, you still have 2800’ more of less strenuous climbing until the Dead Indian summit at mile 35. Finally the glorious views on the 13-mile twisty, narrow Dead Indian descent will take your breath away. You will be supremely ready for delicious bar-b-q and a beer at the finish.
