Now that’s a headline we don’t get to write every day.
Russ Roca of the bike-adventure media organization Path Less Pedaled, which works with tourism agency Travel Oregon to show off the state’s scenic bikeways, just shared this terrific opportunity for people interested in bike travel over the next three months.
If you’ve got a bike, gear and a yen to see our state at human speed, Travel Oregon and Path Less Pedaled invite you to apply invite you to apply to be featured in a one- to two-minute video like the one below. The production will cover the subjects’ meals and lodging, plus possible transportation.
Roca and his partner and collaborator, Laura Crawford, are looking for riders of various ages, sizes, shapes, colors and backgrounds, and encouraging all riders to apply.
“This is marketing, but it is also an advocacy tool, because we’re attracting new people to bike travel,” Roca says. “We have an opportunity to not only help build tourism in rural communities, but to inspire people from diverse backgrounds to ride a bike on their next vacation and travel to Oregon.”
