A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Christmas Eve on the Periwinkle Bikepath

Written December 24th, 2020 by Hasso Hering

What’s better on Christmas Eve than a quick bike ride through town, including a short jaunt on a segment of Albany’s Periwinkle Bikepath?

Feel free to come along. It only takes five minutes.

Thanks for joining me on this little interlude. Try that path yourself one of these days. I think it could stand more users.

In the meantime, from me and the vast staff of hh-today, a merry Christmas to you all. (hh)

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and Kathy.
    I/we really enjoy your videos on HH. Thank you for those and please continue them.

    Merry Christmas Hasso and thanks for writing your blog. As a 50+ year reader of the DH and soon to end, your commentary is the only believable local news we get anymore. When did journalism skew from reporting objectively to offering opinion?

  3. Brad says:

    I’m sure I’ve said this before, Hasso, but you’re my main source of local news. Thanks for being much cooler than any local papers. You’re awesome.

    Blessed Christmas day, H. H.
    How long have you been part of my life?
    I remember an early introduction on a farm tour by school bus just after you had written an editorial basically endorsing my opponent. Was it in 1974 or 1978?
    I also remember when you called me in the 90’s and asked, “Liz, who is writing this stuff for you?” My volunteer staff Dr. Ben Stout became a reliable source of info for you too.
    Lots of other memories and so good to see you once in a blue moon.
    Best wishes,
    Liz VanLeeuwen

    Merry Christmas Hasso. I’ve walked that path many times. Continuing on is a bit of a hassle, having to cross two streets but worth it. Thank you for the ride.

    I’ve often wondered what became of the people who drove into Periwinkle Creek some years back, across from the Megafoods Market. I don’t recall seeing any follow up in the D-H.

    I have never been on that section of the path. But the other section off of Geary/Queen to Grand Prairie rd I have but it has been many many years ago.
