Almost 45 years ago, city of Eugene staffers and a few dedicated citizens formed the first Eugene Bicycle Committee. By 1972, they had established the city’s first budget for bikeways—a whopping $30,000, used mostly to match state and federal transportation grants.
Bike Path Cleanup
In 1998 Lane County Audubon made a commitment to the city of Eugene by "adopting" the westerly end (about 5 miles) of West Eugene's Fern Ridge Bike Path. Audubon's decision expresses our dedication to keeping Eugene's waterways an inviting habitat for wildlife and a safe and clean area for recreation.
