Bike Riding in Eugene

Eugene Oregon is a bicycle friendly city. Notice what the City of Eugene website has to say about provisions for bike riding -

"Eugene's growing bicycle network includes:
42 miles of shared-use paths,
81 miles of on-street bicycle lanes,
35 miles of signed bikeways, and
5 bicycle/pedestrian bridges spanning the Willamette River
2 bicycle/pedestrian bridges spanning major roads or highways"

Wow, this is a really beautiful photo. I would love to have enough free time to go out biking whenever I feel like it. I have been to Eugene a couple of times. I never realized that bike riding was such a thing out there.http://www.triabike.com

Nice candid shot Vern.

So nice how she has decorated her bike. A great way to get around. A wonderful photo.

Very nice capture, Vern.
Frank Brault25-Oct-2013 20:01
A beautiful street candid. If we had that kind of support for bikes, I would probably get out there again. V

Did you hire a model for this?? ;-)
I would guess that bicycling in Eugene is very limited by the weather. A great place to bike when it's dry, but only the hard-core would battle the weather to commute on a daily basis. When we were in Copenhagen, I would guess that 75% of the people there traveled exclusively by bike.

Beautifully composed! V

Terrific shot, Vern. She is certainly showing her style. ;)

Never understood casual riding bikes that did not have fenders. Guess I'm old. Good shot Vern.
Walter Otto Koenig25-Oct-2013 15:14
Wonderful candid Vern. Glad to hear the city is bicycle friendly. Unfortunately the city I live is not.

Nice image of this bike rider (noticed you chose a lovely lass instead of a guy) :-))

Nicely captured and documented.

In North America, I think Eugene gets beat out as a "bicycle town" only by Portland. And, Eugene has more fun with their bicycles than most of Portland. Except for Portland's "Zoobombers," Portland takes its bicycles too seriously. I regularly ride through Portland on my $1200 Surly and realize my bike is below the average fare by a couple of thousand bucks. Eugene, on the other hand, just uses the bikes they have.

Excellent capture Vern! Great exercise too! V

Beautiful relaxing image Vern. They are following suit in the UK encouraging people to ride their bikes more to help the environment.

I must try some frilly shorts like that. They'd be a hit on the next PBP.
Marco Valk25-Oct-2013 07:49

Absolutely beautiful shot, such a pretty lady and pretty colours.

What a beautiful model. Very nicely captured. Love the fashion accents, both on her and on the bike.
Janice Dunn25-Oct-2013 05:55
Super shot of this lady on her bike. And Eugene definitely sounds very bicycle friendly
