League of American Bicyclists Executive Director Andy Clarke will attend the upcoming Oregon Bicycle Tourism Summit planned for April 13-14th in Sisters, Oregon.
Summit organizer Jerry Norquist — who confirmed Clarke’s attendance — said Clarke will share insights and inspirations from the National Bike Summit, which happens a month earlier in Washington D.C.
Last year’s Oregon Bike Tourism Summit took place in Eugene and brought together advocates, manufacturers, elected officials and interested cititzens to exchange ideas on how to make Oregon the #1 state for bicycle tourism.
This year’s event will take place at the Five Pine Conference Center in Sisters, Oregon (North of Bend) and will be followed by the the 23rd annual Oregon Governor’s Conference on Tourism which takes place in Sunriver a day later. Norquist has also expanded this year’s summit to two days with an event on Friday night and a full schedule on Saturday.
If you are interested in making Oregon the premier destination for bicycling in the U.S., make your plans to join us at the Summit.
Stay tuned for more details, and an update on the list of speakers and workshops once they’re finalized.
