A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

A good day to use the bike

Written February 7th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

When almost everyone else is watching TV is a great time for getting outside on a bike. Super Bowl Sunday afternoon was ideal.

Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley has some very fine roads that fairly invite cycling: Well paved, adequate shoulders on the main routes, relatively little traffic, courteous drivers, and depending where you go, not many hills. What more can anyone ask?

Add the mild weather on Sunday, which ended up sunny and calm after starting out overcast, and it seemed like it would have been wrong not to get out there and make use of the time. (hh)

You don't have to worry about too much traffic at this corner in Linn County.
