Ron Cost

Ron Cost Memorial Ride

The September 3 ride was in memory of Ron Cost, cyclist and Steamboat club member who passed away on August 22. it is Ron’s favorite route, heading east to the Eula area, through Denton Valley and then south of Highway 36 into the Oplin and Dudley areas. Some of the prettiest riding you’ll find in our area, the route stays in the hills. Thanks to Ron’s good friend Ben Galinak for plotting the route. https://www.strava.com/routes/2999036052322585054
