ON BIKE CULTURE IN EUGENE | Fine blogging since 2010 (with periodic long breaks)
We interrupt this long hiatus in blogging for a quick moment of blatant self-promotion.
This coming Saturday, I will be hosting Eugene’s first-ever (as far as we know) Bike Mural Tour.
It’s like the art walk, except we are traveling by bicycle, and will visit something like 18 or 20 murals, mostly in the Whiteaker and downtown neighborhoods. Several artists will be along to talk about their work.
We’ll start at 10 a.m. at Third Avenue and Van Buren Street, at the parking lot across the street from Ninkasi. The whole tour should take about two hours.
Here’s the poster of the event, created by local artist Claire Flint, who is the person responsible for my being the “host” of this event.
The tour includes stuff like this, in which we have some sort of coyote riding a bike maybe:
And stuff like this, entitled “Butterfly on Cinderblock”:
It’s going to be great fun. So be there.
This is a joint project of the Lane Arts Council’s First Friday Art Walk and the alternative Last Friday Whiteaker Art Walk. We also have a couple of fine sponsors: Arriving by Bike and Cornucopia.
The tour will end at the 17th and Lincoln Cornucopia sometime around noon — where my recent test ride ended successfully, as well.
