nice bicycle rides in and around Eugene and the coast

Hi. I'm picking up a new bicycle in Eugene in August and would like to take a few nice bike rides in the area before heading home. Can anyone recommend some nice trails, etc for solo riding. I hear there are some wonderful covered bridges in the area. After Eugene, I plan on heading to the coast and driving up to Canada. Thanks

There are miles of bike trail up and down both sides of the Willamette River, which runs right through town; from Amazon Park along Amazon Creek all the way out through the west Eugene wetlands to Fernridge; and Cottage Grove offers more miles of bike paths.

Wherever you pick up your bike, I'm sure they'll have trail maps for you. You can also check out CVALCO (Convention & Visitors Assn. of Lane County). And, if you go to www.Obsidians.org and click on the bike trips report section, you'll get reports on all the bike trips the organization has conducted all the way back to the 1970s. In fact, if you check the Obsidian activity calendar for the time period when you'll be in town, you may even be able to participate in one of our trips. Just call the leader and tell him/her you're coming in from out of town and won't be able to sign up in advance. He/she will welcome you, give you info on the outing, tell you what to bring, etc.
