Once again Travel Oregon is taking their commitment to bicycle tourism to the next level: They plan to award five, $1,000 scholarships to the 2015 National Bike Summit in Washington D.C. The catch? You must be working on projects or policies that focus on rural bicycle tourism.
From their rural tourism studios to the RideOregonRide website, Travel Oregon has gone “all-in” on bicycle tourism over the past few years. And they’re no strangers to the National Bike Summit. Top-level staffers from the organization have been attending the event since 2007.
This year’s Summit is March 10-12th. The League of American Bicyclists sayss this year’s theme, “Bikes+” will, “focus on new ideas for exponential growth and build strong partnerships to get us there. We’ll zero in on how the bike movement can add value to other issues and find powerful champions in health, community development and the business sector.”
If you’re an Oregonian working to make rural bicycle tourism better and need financial help to attend the Summit, fill out the online application form. Submissions must be in by 5:00 pm on January 30th.
