Got some great news from Eugene-based bike advocate (and juggler) Mike Seager the other day. He and a few other volunteer contributors have launched WeBikeEugene.org, “a site that could be described as Eugene’s version of BikePortland.”
Mike’s the editor of the site and he’s also a member of GreyMatter Jugglers, “Eugene’s only bicycle powered circus troupe.” He’s joined by his wife Kendra Seager, the site’s copy editor, and noted bike advocate Shane Rhodes. Rhodes is one of the founders of Kidical Mass who won an Alice Award last year for his work on Eugene’s Safe Routes to Schools program. Alexander Hongo, a teacher and mechanic at the University of Oregon’s Bicycle Program, is also on the staff roster.
Here’s more from the site’s About page:
“We are riders in, advocates for, and members of the Eugene/Springfield cycling community. We have come together to share our knowledge of “what’s going on,” as best we can – and together with readers seek out new knowledge. We also “nerd out” a lot about things that cyclists think are interesting.”
Eugene’s bike scene is flourishing and it will only get better with the addition of this website. Good luck to the entire WeBikeEugene crew!
Go Hongo! I’ve been telling him to do this for years. Check out his Eugene bike culture blog mybagisbigger.blogspot.com
Excellent – can’t have enough news and info social network sites for localized stuff about bikes. Good luck guys!
