As part of my McMenamins Passport adventure I wanted to get a stamp for the “Ride a Bike to the Pub” Experience. I couldn’t really see myself hauling my bicycle in my truck 75 miles north up the I-5, and then riding it along a busy city street to some McMenamins venue in Portland.

As of August 2016 I had not yet visited any of the three McMenamins pubs in Eugene, 45 miles south down the I-5. When I looked at their locations on a map, I noticed that the North Bank res­tau­rant was right on the Willamette River, next to Alton Baker Park.

Riding my bicycle along a bike path next to the River sounded much better than riding in the Big City for this country bumpkin. My bicycle just fit into the back of my 2009 Toyota Tacoma truck for the drive from Albany to Eugene.

At the North Bank I enjoyed a truly scrumptious elk burger, a salad with champagne vinaigrette dressing and a tasty beer at a patio table just a stone’s throw from the River. After lunch I rode my bike about five miles along the Willamette. Next I drove to McMenamins’ High Street Brewery and Café and East 19th Street Café to enjoy more McMenamins beverages and collect Passport location stamps.

During this first McMenamins Eugene outing I took a total of 73 photos over a period of three and a half hours. The best 23 formed the beginning of this album. The pictures from my three subsequent visits to the McMenamins Eugene pubs during the following months of 2016 have be added as well, bringing the total to 43. Follow the links to the articles below for the details of all four visits.
