Flat Tempo Ride on Farm Roads

October 20, 2018 7:00am–10:00am

This is a flat, moderately high intensity group road ride. Expect pace-lines of around 18-24 mph depending on conditions and who's in attendance.

We schedule this ride early on Saturday morning for those that want to get their ride done early and so that our shop employees can partake before we open up. Join us for just part of the ride if you want to use it as a kick-start to your own longer ride or do the whole thing if you need to use the rest of your weekend to get stuff done. This ride should be done within two and a half hours and certainly no more than three.

The course we will do today is Flat Tempo Ride on Farm Roads. This is a mostly flat farm route with just enough rises to keep it challenging to maintain pace.

This is a tempo ride. If you unfamiliar with a tempo ride, a great description of it is here. This is the ride to work on hard sustained efforts, not to make attacks that blow up the group. Please try to maintain the pace the group has settled into. 

If you are unfamiliar with group ride etiquette (or even if you are familiar), review some basic tips here. There will be the occasional slow down for dropped riders but don't expect a full stop. Please know the course before showing up to this ride in case you need to find your way home on your own.

Please bring water, flat kits and lights (remember: a helmet might reduce your chance of injury, but a rear blinky light will prevent a crash all-together). Also Make sure you know the route well enough to get home (farm roads are easy enough to find your way).

Art and Photography of Glenn and Jesse Justus

October 20, 2018 12:00pm–4:00pm

The Klamath Art Gallery presents a memorable and inspiring exhibit by local father and son, Glenn and Jesse Justus. Works range from stunning photography by Jesse Justus, to outstanding woodworking and painting by Jesse’s father, Glenn. The opening reception for the artists will be held on Sunday, October 7th, from noon to 4 PM. The exhibit will continue through Sunday, October 28th.

Glenn Justus was born in the West Virginia mountains in a little place called Cabin Creek. Justus has travelled a good portion of the globe and his paintings reflect the images captured by his camera. In addition, Justus has been a woodcarver since he was old enough to hold a knife and a leather carver since high school. A Renaissance man, Justus is a musician and a luthier, repairing old instruments and building new ones, and a skilled silversmith.

Glenn Justus is a member of the Klamath Writers Guild wherein he writes songs, stories, and poetry. He has recorded twelve CD’s and a book that includes two CD’s of original songs and poetry. He currently resides in Klamath Falls with his wife, son, and four dogs.

Jesse Justus graduated from Klamath Union High School and became interested in photography in the late 90’s. After becoming an expert in digital camerawork, he was drawn to wildlife photography with a concentration in avian photography. Jesse, like his father, is a Renaissance man with memberships in the Klamath Folk Music Society and Photography as well as the Audubon Society.
