Both rides will convene in Island Park at the end for a group celebration. All ages, genders, and levels welcome. Route information available at bit.ly/EugSpfldCycloFemme15
Theme: pretty skirts (interpreted by you), temporary tattoos, music, and food!
A gathering on the second “Twos-day” of every month. Come on two wheels. Or two feet. Have two beers. Why? Because one is not enough to have a meaningful conversation. Because people who get around on two wheels and two feet should get together sometimes.No agenda. No icebreakers. Mix. Mingle. Stand in the corner. Hang out. Have fun. Tell someone your fantastic idea. Or don’t. For an hour. Maybe two.Possibly nothing profound will occur. But you never know. Better be there, just in case.

We rally on bikes at the obelisk (by the train station), bike to the Martin st. trailhead and run up and down Spencer’s Butte. We then bike to Pisgah, run up (and down); bike to Skinner’s, summit, and feel epic.Walking folks are welcome too! The timing usually works out fine. If you can’t make it for the full deal, join us for parts or just a peak. Rough schedule: 9am: leave obelisk. 12noon: leave the bottom of Spencer’s. 3pm: leave the bottom of Pisgah. Let me know if you need more specific timing. We can be in touch.Here’s what you need:
Running shoes, a bike, cute socks, water, quality snacks, cute friends, your tightest shorts, glitter, layers, tutu, badassery, bling, secret flask, water, warrior face. A bike lock is a good idea but we can share.This is not a race! It’s a running, biking, social event! We want to help everyone finish and wait at junctions and summits and encourage/inspire 🙂

Solar Bike Tour, EWEB, 3-5pm
As the weather is getting nicer and the sun is shining brighter we all need more excuses to get outside. What about an educational bike ride?
On Friday, May 29th, from 3:00 – 5:00 Environment Oregon will be hosting a great and informative solar bike tour.
We will be meeting at the Eugene Water and Electric Board (EWEB), at 500 E 4th Ave,, to learn about their current and future plans for solar development. We will then ride around town and see a couple great PV systems in the area followed by a beautiful ride down the river. We will end with a tour at the Solar Radiation lab at the University of Oregon.
Following the bike ride, lane county commissioner Pete Sorenson will be discussing his plans for his new new solar development project. After the commissioners talk there will be many fun solar related activates to participate in, such as games with prizes, music, and much more!
The ride will be a great time to not only enjoy the sunshine but also learn about its power. Hope to see you all then!
