ON BIKE CULTURE IN EUGENE | Fine blogging since 2010 (with periodic long breaks)
Sunday Streets returns this weekend.
On, yes, Sunday (Sept. 9) from noon to 4 p.m. they will clear a few streets of motor vehicles and give free passage to bicyclists, pedestrians, strollers, crawling babies, dogs … heck, even bring the backyard chickens if you got ‘em. (I know you have chickens.)
For four hours, it’ll be like a post-apocalyptic world without cars. You can ride the centerline, weave all over the street and have a great time. This year the route, three miles total, is a figure-8 through the South University neighborhood. Here’s the city’s map of the event:

Last year, was the first Sunday Streets in Eugene — through the Fifth Street Market-Whiteaker area. It was fun. Remember this guy?
