Oregon Bicycle Tourism Summit
Travel Oregon hosted 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 was held in conjunction with the 2017 Oregon Active Transportation Summit (OATS).
The 2017 Oregon Bike Tourism Summit continued to build upon the ongoing work of the Oregon Bicycle Tourism Partnership. The conference began with 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. During the afternoon small groups worked collaboratively to determine how to build out world-class routes. The program ended with a reception featuring bike tour operators, guides and outfitters.
More than 70 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, attended.
