"destination biking" east of Gresham.
Back in July, we wrote that a big recreational biking upgrade is in the works for east Multnomah County. A pair of public "studio workshops" next month will shape its direction.
People at the free workshops — a seven-hour one Nov. 13 at Troutale's Edgefield McMenamin's and a four-hour one Nov. 14 at the Corbett Fire House — will get to "identify assets, opportunities, and barriers to increasing bicycle tourism" in the region.
With a Travel Oregon study estimating that 15 percent of tourism in the Gorge/Mount Hood area is already bike-related, the area's business leaders see big potential for improving things further.
