This story is part of my ongoing coverage of the 2008 National Bike Summit. See the rest of my coverage here.

Oregon is on a quest to be “the place bicycles dream about” so it should come as no surprise that the Oregon delegation at the National Bike Summit is nothing short of a Dream Team. This all-star cast represents diverse perspectives, has expertise in many areas, is passionate about the bicycle movement, and above all, they’re just really nice folks.

Here’s a list of who they are and what they do (if I left anyone out, please let me know)…

With talent like this, and all the voices they represent back home, I’d say Oregon’s bicycling future is in very good hands.

And by the way, there are no try-outs for this Dream Team. All you have to do is show up to become a member. So start making plans for next year’s Summit, we’d love to have you join us!
