Golfers pause to be part of Cycle Oregon 2018 visit
ery early on Tuesday morning
of last week, Alpine Meadow
golfers left their clubs at home,
and instead played host to Cycle Ore-
gon’s approximately 1,600 cyclists at
the Enterprise City Park as riders took
their first rest break on their trek to
Elgin and onward.
Fortunate to be chosen as one of
Cycle Oregon’s 2018 Wallowa County
host participants, 15 to 25 sleepy-eyed
but eager Alpine Meadows volun-
teers, including Terry Lamb and Gary
Marr, who had served as monitors at
the Cycle Oregon beer garden Monday
night, huddled at the park at the crack
of a cold dawn, waiting for the rest stop
crew to show.
They didn’t wait long.
Several large yellow rental trucks
quietly pulled up to the curb loaded
with the equipment needed to set up
a water stop. First, two trailers carry-
ing portable toilets ─ referred to as
the “Blue Rooms” ─ arrived. Another
truck or two came loaded with all the
nuts and bolts it takes to set up a water
Known only as “Tom and Cheryl”
to the volunteers, the two experienced
leaders put everyone to work within
Several guys and gals formed a pro-
duction line, moving large bags of ice
from the truck to aluminum tubs that
held bottled water and pop. Tables, can-
opies and recycle tents were unloaded
next. Multiple boxes of bread, peaches,
plums and condiments were distributed
to a make-shift kitchen.
Donna McCadden, Cheri Lamb,
Kathy Reynolds, Laidee Ann Wolfe
and Nancy Huff put on their aprons
and made peanut butter and jelly sand-
Ernestine Kilgore, Carol Marr, Beth
Hough, Judy Ables, Dana Roberts,
Karen Coppin, Jim Kilgore, and Bill
Ables helped serve the prepared food
at the tables under the canopies.
Choices consisted of ready to eat
boiled eggs, old-fashion donut halves,
chocolate covered raisins and almonds
in mini-cups, fresh fruit and breakfast
The cyclists, dressed in colorful
spandex, were friendly, personable,
continuous in their thanks to volun-
teers, and comments of beauty of Wal-
lowa Mountains. And, by 11 a.m. when
the last bike disappeared down the
road, these healthy-looking, athletic
cyclists had eaten the place clean. Not
a donut remained.
As the loaded trucks pulled away
from curb, the park looked as though
no one had been there. Thank you
Cycle Oregon for visiting.
