EUGENE, Ore. — Thousands of residents used nothing but foot-powered transportation Sunday.
Eugene Sunday Streets returned for its second event of the summer, this time in the Harlow neighborhood. Organizers say they hope the free community event inspires people to use other modes of transportation besides driving.
“We’re trying to help our community see that there are other ways to get around other than driving alone. So, showing people you can walk, and you can bike as a form of transportation. Not only is it fun, but it’s convenient, it costs less than driving and it helps you stay healthy,” says Lindsay Selser with the City of Eugene.
City representatives say they are already planing for next year, which will make the event’s fifth year.
