Now there's something to look forward to if you take the Dave Clark Path along the Willamette River in Albany to finish a long ride on a hot summer's day.
"Cold beer ahead." Could there be a more welcome sign to cheer the hearts of weary travelers? Or path walkers, as the case may be?
So now, when you take a break there during the advertised hours, you will have a choice to make. Tepid water from the bike bottle, with its plastic taste? Or a fresh and cool Pilsner just a few feet off the beaten path, in the Deluxe Brewing Co. in the building on the right? Tough choice indeed.
There's a second new sign just like this on the path coming the other way, lest westward walkers and riders miss getting the word. (hh)
