The 2017 Oregon Bike Tourism Summit aims to continue to build upon the ongoing work of the Oregon Bicycle Tourism Partnership. This year’s conference will dive deep into the emerging discussions on the formation a statewide trails association in the morning before moving into a keynote on world-class cycle routes from Louise Böhler of the German National Cyclists’ Association focused on the AFDC “quality routes” certification program and an update on the Oregon Timber Trail. The afternoon will focus on small group work considering how to build out world-class routes. The program will end with a reception featuring bike tour operators, guides and outfitters.

Bicycle tourism stakeholders, including bicycle tour operators, event producers, land management organizations, transportation and land use planning organizations, destination marketing organizations, trail organizations, advocacy organizations, and marketing and media organizations, are all encouraged to attend.
