Plenty of space to ride a bike – Hasso Hering


A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Plenty of space to ride a bike

Written January 11th, 2016 by Hasso Hering


We like to think of Oregon’s mid-valley as the ideal place for riding a bike. But as I hope the video shows, the central valley of California, away from the cities, is cycling country too.

This place is off Interstate 5 in the vicinity of the town of Coalinga. The rolling road and lack of heavy traffic make for a refreshing morning ride, even in mid-January.

The road is marked by a three memorials to people who, apparently, lost their lives there. There’s no information about the circumstances. I trust they had nothing to do with bikes. The few vehicles who passed me this morning gave me more than enough space. (hh)
