Last week’s Business Journal has a guest column by Bart Eberwein, suggesting that we could generate additional tourism dollars by promoting Oregon as THE cycling state. Here’s part of the vision:
Fly into Portland where you are met by a bicycle concierge who helps you assemble your bikes, answers questions about routes, etc., and off you go.
A network of clearly signed, long, winding roads, criss-crossing Oregon. And just about every time you are feeling hungry, there’s a bicycle friendly ice cream store, and when you’re tired, a B&B.
Come cycle Oregon.
