A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Testing a wider, nicer Riverside Drive

Written May 10th, 2018 by Hasso Hering

[youtube video=”ZfPYk8BzR-c”] Nice paving job — and wide too! That was my first impression Wednesday of the newly rebuilt segment of Riverside Drive just outside of Albany. On the bike, the wider road really makes a difference, even before the lane markings are installed.


Linn set to widen Riverside Drive

Linn County’s plan to widen Riverside Drive — a long-awaited safety improvement for drivers and bike commuters — is about to take off.


Riverside bike route: Not so fast

Written August 2nd, 2016 by Hasso Hering

ODOT completed a million-dollar separated bike path along Highway 34 last fall. It’s supposed to be part of a safer bike route between Albany and Corvallis. Linn County had hoped to start this year on its part of the deal — wider shoulders along part of six-mile-long Riverside Drive — but there’s been a delay.


Enjoying summer’s first day

Written June 20th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

There are lots of ways to observe the first day of summer, I guess. But I figure one of the best is to make use of the county roads in Oregon’s mid-valley for a leisurely ride on my bike. So that’s what I did on Monday morning.


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.


Empty roads, great for cycling

Written July 25th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

On a sunny summer’s day, there’s nothing like the wide open secondary roads of the mid-Willamette Valley for a leisurely cruise on a bike. Normally you don’t meet anybody out there. But sometimes you do, as the video demonstrates. And it’s a rare occasion when somebody stops for a chat. (hh)
