Duck Bike Champion!

This Saturday: Come join Eugene’s Bicycle Champions in the Celebrating Champions parade! To recognize Eugene’s Gold status as a Bicycle Friendly Community and our work to achieve Platinum we’ll be showcasing the major champions of cycling’s future in Eugene: kids & families! Eugene’s Safe Routes to School program and other local sponsors encourage all local cyclists to join the Bicycle Champions entry by decking out your ride (and yourselves) in green & yellow and creating fun signs about bikes, champions, families/kids, your school or organization and the Ducks. We’ll have some bike tunes, banners, and more to help us standout as champs!

    Hi, I just learned about the cycling edition to the parade and about the parade in general. It sounds very amazing. I am a pre-school teacher that loves to ride with “my kids” I am putting the word out for them to meet, at the last minute, so we hope to ride with you, wish us luck! Bicycles Rule!
