Holiday Swarm On Willamette Street

Holiday Swarm on Willamette Street
Yesterday was the Holiday Swarm on  South Willamette  Street for pedestrians and cyclists to get out and do some last minute shopping the weekend before Christmas. The Swarm was planned by a group of citizens to show  the city, and businesses along the street, that pedestrians and cyclists are in large numbers along the road, shopping at their stores and enjoying the community along Willamette, even on days like this.


There were a lot of pedestrians and cyclists, though the video doesn’t show them all. It was taken over a short time, and lots were spread out along the entire street, shopping and eating at all the different businesses South Willamette Street has to offer. Notice all the cars out, most are just passing through this nice little section of town, skipping over these shops. I hope the businesses consider how much pedestrians and cyclists mean to them. Improvements for the street are in the works and being discussed with members of the community to help rejuvenate this section of Willamette street. With a bond measure passed last November, one of the plans is to repave and better redesign the layout of the street to be more multi-modal. There will hopefully be much better pedestrian and bicycle facilities along the road with nicer vehicle lanes to help make traveling to and along Willamette Street much nicer.

WordPress Gets Dropped Off The Back

BreadBike.wordpress.com has now become BreadBike.com. Making it simpler for the expanding audience and I. Thank you for my usual readers, the people who just stumble upon the blog, and to future readers. I hope you all enjoy.
Thank You For Reading

And remember you can find me (Bread Bike) on other popular social media sites.

This does not affect using the URL “BreadBike.wordpress.com”, that will work fine, nothing actually moved just the name. This will have an effect on the old “Shortlinks”, like what Twitter uses, breaking all the past links from their pages, but new ones will still work.

PSA: “Sonic Sez” to Check Your Bike


Don’t let your bicycle fall in disrepair like Grounder and Scratch. Check your bike over before every ride and keep it well maintained like our good friends Sonic the Hedgehog and Miles “Tails” Prower.

Update:
Here is a great resource for bicycle safety checks and other information at League of American Bicyclists. – Thanks Shane of Eugene Safe Routes to School for the link!
