LiveMove hit the national stage this past week as Allison Camp, LiveMove alum and current Transportation Options Coordinator at Lane Transit District presented our collaborative efforts with LTD on advancing active and public transportation projects in the Eugene-Springfield Community. The presentation was very well received and included a number of comments such as “we need a group like that in our town!” Congrats Allie, and congrats LiveMove, on a job well done!
LiveMovers are wrapping up the fall term today, and headed their respective ways for some rest and relaxation. We had a term end pizza social the other evening (see photo below), which was well attended and a nice break from the stress of finals! We’ll be starting things up in winter term January 7th, and are looking forward to a new ByDesign project, our first speaker of the academic year, continuing with the Walking School Bus, and of course, more progress on the 13th Ave project. We hope you all have a nice holiday season, and we’ll look forward you seeing you in 2014!
Now that school is about to start up, we know many people are new to Eugene and may not know the best ways to get around by bike. For you, LiveMove is sponsoring “Bike Orientation” tours of Eugene. We’ll cover the best ways to get around to the different neighborhoods from campus, how to prepare for Oregon rain on a bike, the better bike routes to take, and some often unknown recreation paths! They will last about an hour, and if you don’t have a bike, the UO Bike Program will rent you one at a discounted rate!
The tours will be Tuesday October 8th and 15th at 3:30 PM, and Thursday, October 10th and 17th at 5:00 PM. Each ride can accommodate up to 10 riders. If interested, email Nick Meltzer at email@example.com to sign up! More details will follow once sign up has been completed.
