I remember thinking last year when riding the bRamble that those bike paths would be kinda scary at certain times of the day.
My wife and I go down to ride the bike trails in Eugene at least two times a year and feel total safe. But then we never ride them at night. Sadly I donít think thatís a good idea in any US city today. Even more sad is there are bike trails in Portland, OR that I wouldnít ride during the day. As you probably seen on the news, Portland has a big problem with homeless. Not only are there homeless camps everywhere you look but they camp right on the bike trail as well, Iíve seen it total blocked at times.

My wife and I used to ride Portlandís bike trails but stopped about five years do to us feeling unsafe and by the many news articles we are not along.
