Ashland Oregon, photo courtesy of flickr.comWhile reading fellow Active Rainer Mike Jones' post about the bicycle friendly towns and cities listed by the League of American Bicyclists, I saw that Ashland Oregon had made the cut. I knew Ashland has great bike lanes and paths throughout town, as well as trails for mountain bike enthusiasts up in the watershed on the base of Mount Ashland.

This university town needs systems in place like this, but they're great for residents and workers, too. My husband rides over to our weekly Rotary Meetings, arriving within 5 minutes of the time it would take him to drive, while enjoying the opportunity to get out there for a breath of fresh air and some exercise.

Krista - Yes, we travel the Bear Creek Greenway a lot, on bikes, by foot, and with dog when we're headed to the Dog Park in Medford. It's a great trail, that will be even better when the South Valley interchange work is complete.
