Dear Neighborhood leaders,
The Greater Eugene Area Riders (GEARS), Safe Routes to School (SRTS),
the City of Eugene, and other sponsoring organizations are excited to bring
you the 2nd annual Blackberry Jamboree, a neighborhood bike ride around
Eugene. Joining with the success of the GEARs' annual Blackberry bRamble
ride (now in its 10th year as a signature century and metric century bike
ride) the Jamboree is a fun bike ride that shows off our community and
parks, gets families active and engaged in their community, celebrates the
bikeability of our town, gives us the time to *Jam *to some good music, and
to enjoy some blackberry pie and ice cream!
The ride starts and ends at the *EWEB Plaza* and will be Saturday,
August 1st. The first 10 mile loop will go into North Eugene, through *Emerald
* and *Oakmont *parks coming back to the EWEB Plaza before heading out onto
the second 10 mile loop going into South Eugene through * University* and *
Westmoreland *parks. Folks can ride the first loop, the second, or the
whole thing! Riders can go at their own pace solo or with a group!
This ride helps to support the SRTS, GEARs and BTA *programs for
bicycle & pedestrian Education and Encouragement.*
We would LOVE to have some neighborhood groups join in by not
only encouraging people to come out and ride but also to *host a park*. We
will have two hour slots at each park that we would like to have
neighborhood representatives at to talk about their 'hood, hand out treats,
and maybe even organize some music to be at the park for the riders who come
Interested in joining in? Please *contact us* and let us know if you
would be able to host a table, look for treats (we'll also be looking for
those who just want to be at a table on that day), and/or book some music
for your neighborhood park.
Information and sign up for the event can be found on the GEARs
We look forward to hearing from you! Please contact me if you are
interested or have any questions.
