Wheels by the Willamette
September 28 • 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm• Free
Autumn is upon us. Watch out for Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Uggs and spooky spirits. It’s also time for the Oregon Drive Less Challenge, which runs Oct. 1 through Oct. 15. Wheels by the Willamette Event is organized by city of Springfield and Point2Point at Lane Transit District to drum up interest in the challenge and generate a culture of safety through Be Seen Be Safe. The event will feature free bicycle safety checks by Hutch’s Bicycles, bike maps and snacks. You can also see people show their leg power by having a bike-blended smoothies, courtesy of Springfield Safe Routes to Schools. Make sure you grab some lights at the event because drivers in Eugene-Springfield, in my experience, are terrible even when there’s daylight until 9 pm.
Wheels by the Willamette Event is 4 to 6 pm Friday, Sept. 28 at Northbank Path at Aspen and W. D Street by the boat launch. FREE. — Henry Houston
