Grande Tour Scenic Bikeway

The Grande Tour Scenic Bikeway is a massive ride that circumnavigates parts of the Original Oregon Trail and the panoramic beauty of Northeastern Oregon via a unique “figure 8” ride configuration. The route loops its way through two major Northeastern Oregon Cities, La Grande and Baker City, but the route also includes long sections where there is relatively little in the way of formal services. The Grande Tour Scenic Bikeway workshop helped communities along the Grande Tour Scenic Bikeway develop strategies to capitalize on their strengths, help develop bicycle friendly communities, and explore how they could further leverage their assets so the economic and social benefits from the route can be maximized.

Travel Oregon has designed a series of Bicycle Tourism Studios and workshops for the Oregon Scenic Bikeways and destinations seeking assistance in developing more bicycle tourism. These Studios are intended to help make our Scenic Bikeways the best places to ride in North America, to elevate surrounding areas as bicycle travel-friendly destinations, and to help local businesses benefit from visiting cyclists. The program is crafted to further planning efforts for each Scenic Bikeway, educate people about the growing cycling tourism market, foster key connections between local players and regional, state and national organizations, and focus community energy on the development of necessary infrastructure, business services and marketing activities.
