“The Rogue River Greenway has the potential to be a world class, easily accessible, off-road trail; a jewel for the local residents and a destination for tourists. I am hopeful that the recent substantial completion of the adjoining Bear Creek Greenway will increase the interest in this exciting and worthwhile project.”

“Bikekraft has been an active sponsor and volunteer at the Ride the Rogue benefit for the Rogue River Green-way since its inception. I think the benefits to the Rogue Valley it will provide will be huge. Having a designated place for recreation in the river corridor gives people a feel of the beauty of the Rogue Valley that they can’t get anywhere else.”

As a health care provider, I am very aware of the benefits of an active and healthy life style. I am passionate about cycling. My wife is an avid hiker. I support the Rogue River Greenway because, as a bicycling and walking trail, it will showcase our beautiful Rogue River while providing a source of healthy recreation for people of all ages.

The vision to connect the communities along the Rogue River with a path for foot, bike and other non-motorized, non-car travel is tremendous! This path is available for use by a diverse population and contributes to the health and well-being of our communities in so many ways. I’m pleased to volunteer my time to this endeavor.
