Eugene Bike Trails
May 11, 1975
The weather broke into a beautiful morning and a total of ten appeared for
this Mother’s Day pre-breakfast ride.
We rode out past the Fairgrounds on the bike trail along West Amazon to Chambers
then crossed town to the beginning of the South Bank trail where Joella Hadland
had a flat tire.
Not a repair kit in the party—Ted Kulongoski came to the rescue and called
up a friend for an early Sunday morning good deed and to provide Joella with
That crisis over we continued along the river into Springfield returning along
At one point three cyclists got too close and we had our second minor mishap
as Dorothy Hayes went sprawling on the street.
She jumped up not bothered by it all and continued.
We kept an easy pace perhaps too easy.
When we started the last mile or so on the series of grades to the lodge Bill
and Donna Robertson and Mary Briggs decided to make their kick—but
apparently not too sure where they were going.
When the rest of us got to the Lodge no Bill and Donna, or Mary.
Mary soon showed up but Bill and Donna were still missing.
Ted and Lyn Kulongoski again came to the rescue and were able to locate them but
only after they had had some interesting adventures of packing their bikes across
the soggy golf course to 30th street.
The breakfast was a real treat for ten hungry bike riders.
The ten were:
Joyce and Mary Briggs,
Ted and Lyn Kulongoski,
Bill and Donna Robertson,
Marriner Orum, leader.
