The Weekend Wrapup is a randomly published WeBikeEugene feature used to summarize several key news items into one easy-to-digest post. This Weekend Wrapup will cover The City of Eugene’s Leaf Program presentation to the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC), Active Community Transportation Act and future STP-U funded infrastructure project updates (both via GEARs News), BikeWise.org online hazard reporting, and the University of Oregon’s FLUX magazine story and video featuring yours truly.
Bicycling is a simple, poetic way of solving all kinds of problems, all of the things that plague our culture: health, stress, emotional fatigue, traffic, congestion, pollution, the climate. It’s about community involvement and knowing your neighbors.
Paul Adkins – from Eugene’s Bike-Culturalism by Bronwynn Manaois.
The University of Oregon student run online magazine Flux (which comes out in print once a year in spring) has begun running a series of bicycling related articles. The first is an amusing first person narrative of a rider’s first cyclocross race, written by Nick CotÃ©. The second is an interview with the ubiquitous Paul Adkins, written by WeBikeEugene contributor Bronwynn Manaois. Flux plans to publish more bike-themed articles in the near future.
