A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

A tribute: Why we have bike lanes

Written May 21st, 2017 by Hasso Hering

Albany has a pretty good network of bike lanes and trails, and a 1971 law known as the Oregon Bike Bill is the main reason why. So here’s my periodic tribute to the legacy of the late Donald L. Stathos, the Republican legislator from Jackson County who authored that bill.


Bike bills then and now

Keeping track of bicycle-related bills in the legislature put me in mind of Oregon’s pioneer in bike legislation. I’m talking, of course, of the late Donald L. Stathos, a Republican from Jacksonville who served in the House from 1969 through 1972.
