new Sierra Cascades Bicycle Route.
The Adventure Cycling Association will officially launch their new Sierra Cascades Bicycle Route tonight at the REI store in the Pearl District. As I reported back in February, the new route stretches nearly 2,400 miles from Canada to Mexico. It will also give Oregon a nice boost in bike tourism because it rolls through the Columbia River Gorge and Hood River before heading south through Sisters, Bend, and then onto Ashland.
Adventure Cycling's executive director Jim Sayer says about 250 people showed up to the Sierra Cascades route launch event in Seattle last night.
The event is being held at REI because the national outdoor gear retailer has been a long-time financial supporter of Adventure Cycling.
Here are the details of tonight's event:
- Sierra Cascades Bicycle Route launch party
Wednesday, April 7th
Refreshments at 7:00 p.m., Presentation at 7:30 p.m.
REI - Pearl District (1405 NW Johnson St)
Eugene readers take note. You can catch the launch at your local REI tomorrow. More details here.
