Oregon Bicycle Tourism Summit

2016 Oregon Bicycle Tourism Summit

Travel Oregon is hosting the 2017 Oregon Bicycle Tourism Summit on March 21 at the Oregon Zoo in Portland. As with the inaugural Oregon Bike Tourism Summit in 2016, this event will be held in conjunction with the 2017 Oregon Active Transportation Summit (OATS).

Online registration for this event has closed. Please contact Andrew Grossmann by emailing Andrew@TravelOregon.com to register for the 2017 Bike Tourism Summit.

The 2017 Oregon Bike Tourism Summit aims to build upon the ongoing work of the Oregon Bicycle Tourism Partnership. This year’s conference will begin by taking a closer look at the formation of a statewide trails association, before moving into a keynote address on world-class cycle routes from Louise Böhler of the German National Cyclists’ Association focused on the AFDC “quality routes” certification program and an update on the Oregon Timber Trail. The afternoon will be spent working in small groups to determine how to build out world-class routes. The program will end with a reception featuring bike tour operators, guides and outfitters.

Bicycle tourism stakeholders, including bicycle tour operators, event producers, land management organizations, transportation and land use planning organizations, destination marketing organizations, trail organizations, advocacy organizations, and marketing and media organizations, are all encouraged to attend.

Participants will hear presentations related to the previously established priorities of the Bicycle Tourism Partnership and will then meet in smaller groups to develop strategies for moving these items forward.
