McKenzie View/Camp Creek

May 19, 2007

As luck would have it, after five straight days of sunny skies and highs around 70, eight riders gathered at 10 a.m. at the Campbell Senior Center under a threatening overcast and cool temperatures. The forecast, however, promised only a slight chance of rain, so we headed out the bike path towards Delta Highway and Beltline Road in good spirits. We continued under cloudy skies through north Eugene and up Coburg Road to McKenzie View. Despite the clouds and cool temperatures, the way was dry and scenic. We soon completed McKenzie View and turned on Hall Road to hook up with the beginning of Camp Creek Road. At the Bellinger Boat Launch, we stopped briefly to call ahead to the McKenzie Stage Stop Café to alert them that eight hungry riders would be arriving in about a half an hour. At about 12:25 and after 26 miles of riding, we arrived at the café to find a table all set up awaiting our arrival. We had a delicious lunch and enjoyable conversation before riding the final 15 miles back through Springfield under still cloudy skies. Riders included members, Laurie Funkhouser, Lynn Gilman-Garrick, Stewart Hoeg, George Jobanek, Darrell McBee, and Sharon Ritchie and non-members Paul Garrick and Laurel Peterson.
