The only cycling club I know of in Eugene is GEARs. Is that the one you're referring to? For those who don't know, GEARs sponsors an annual ride, called the Blackberry bRamble. Supposedly the profits from this ride go towards bicycle advocacy and helping maintain multi-use bike paths in the Eugene area. I've done two Blackberry bRamble rides so far. Last year, their 20th annual ride, was pretty cool and had lots of support. My buddy and I did the ride again this year and it seemed that support on the bike routes was not nearly as good as last year. Anyone more familiar with the internal workings of GEARs, please feel free to chime in here.
