Eugene by Cycle
Bicycling is a fast, efficient, and healthy mobility option, which also reduces a neighborhood’s air pollution and traffic congestion. Have fun, get fit, start out your day energized, and do your part for the environment – what a deal!
Eugene/Springfield is a Gold level bike-friendly community – we’ve got bike lanes, bike boulevards, and a great off-street trail network.
Pick up a bike map at any of the bike shops all over town or from our office (99 E. Broadway, Suite 400) and plan your route.

Try it One Way
Maybe it’s too cold in the morning, but the afternoon promises to be perfect for a bike ride. Or the ride to work is an easy downhill glide, while the trip home is an uphill climb. Either way, you can look to the bus to help you out. Each LTD Bus is equipped with racks to carry 3 bikes, no extra charge.
For more information, call the City of Eugene Bicycle & Pedestrian office at 541-682-5471.
