Willamette River Recreation Corridor
September 30, 1979
John and Ruth Bascom and Dave Predeek bicycled leisurely along the Willamette River in Eugene on Sunday afternoon, September 30. Unbeknownst to the three of them, four others waited in vain at the parking lot. Failure to sign the registration sheet or to reach the leader by phone meant the four were not expected and they were lost in the throngs of Sunday park users.
The threesome enjoyed a wonderful outing. The Willie Knickerbocker Bridge is beautiful, though not yet connected.
The 5th Street Market provides good hamburgers and free Sunday concerts. The river sparkles in the slanted rays of autumn sun.
Women distance runners shared the trail and provided diversion. Saddle sores were soon forgotten. Ruth Bascom, Leader.
