If you followed my National Bike Summit coverage, you know that these are exciting times for bike advocacy in Oregon. We’ve got the advocates, planners, partners, and politicians — from small communities to Capitol Hill — to make Oregon the #1 state for biking in America.

We’ve got to keep the momentum going and the Oregon Bike Summit is a natural way to do that. The big day is June 4th and registration just opened and the agenda has been set.

This year’s program will focus on state and national legislative issues, the link between biking and public health, the growth of bike tourism, reaching out to underserved communities, and much more.

Here’s how the action-packed day shakes out:

Isn’t that the Cycle Oregon official bike rack instead of the State of Oregon official bike rack?
