Kidical Mass Adaptive Rec & Swim Ride– Saturday, Noon at Hilyard Community Center (2580 Hilyard). It’s the last ride before school starts, let’s make it count! We’ll be meeting at the Hilyard Community Center to check out some of their cool adaptive bikes, do a ride around the neighborhood, and then end up back at Amazon pool where we’ll get a special FREE & EARLY entry into the Rec. swim! Come check out a family tandem, a handcycle, or other interesting adaptive bike- you can even take it for a spin on our ride! Then join us for a special Kidical Mass swim and BBQ! Hot Dogs, buns, and fixings will be provided (as well as the grill), bring along a food or drink item to share if you can! Thanks to the City of Eugene Hilyard Community Center and Amazon Pool staff for supporting the ride!
Register HERE so we can make sure we have enough food and pool passes
Car Free Party– Celebrating three years of being free from personal motorized vehicle trappings the Adkins family is hosting their annual car free party again this year. Come celebrate with tunes, smiles, laughs, stories, and Oakshire beer. Just be sure and leave that fossil fueled vehicle at home… I mean they even have their own bike rack out front and no driveway so it only makes sense. If you want to bring something – bring it, if not, that is OK too. Bring your bike lights and a friend though.
Saturday night, 7:30 p.m. 180 N. Polk St.
Bike Move– There is a Bike Move scheduled for Sunday August 22nd. The Liebhardt Family, 2 adults and 2 kids, are moving from South Eugene – to Lower River Road neighborhood. We’ll be moving a lot of furniture and boxes of stuff. Annette and Steve will have everything packed up and ready to go. So bring your work bikes, cargo racks, trailers, Xtracycles, or other hauling devices, and tie-down straps and lets do the Bike Move. We need everyone we can get. We are planning to get going by 10AM or so. Fuel and refreshments will be provided. Contact Paul for more details 541-255-2478 or Paul (at) eugenegears.org.
