Freedom Machine

By Bob Marr

“Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel…the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood.”

—Susan B Anthony, Suffragette

Most folks who bike are familiar with this quote. However, the “freedom and self-reliance” Susan B. Anthony attributes to the bicycle were in no way limited to women. Think for a moment about travel in the mid-1800s. The choices were mostly limited to walking, horseback riding, horse-pulled conveyance, train, and ship.

Reveling Autumn, part II

By Tracy Corral

Lithia Park, Ashland, Oregon

At 1,949 feet, Ashland is one of the places you will find fall colors later in the season—and you don’t have to ride your bike far to find them. The trees in Lithia Park, in downtown Ashland, become vibrant with reds and yellows as autumn leaves its mark on the season.

Lithia Park is a 93-acre urban park that straddles Ashland Creek; you can easily access the park by bike. Once you arrive, you’ll have to find a bike rack and lock your bike. You will find the autumnal colors of the Japanese and Big Leaf Maple trees along the 1-mile long Woodland Trail.

The 93 acres of forested canyonland in downtown Ashland's Lithia Park is a fall color wonderland, intermixing local deciduous trees with ones unfamiliar to Oregon forests, like European beech, Japanese snowbell and eastern flowering dogwood.
