The renewed Oregon Mountain Bike Community Summit will be held in Bend October 28th and 29th. The event is focused on bringing the off-road cycling community together to learn, build relationships and find solutions to the challenges in developing and maintaining our sport and trail networks around the state. Recreation, conservation and planning leaders are invited to attend, along with policy makers and trail advocates. Join us for a day of education, networking and sharing best practices to shape the future of the most sustainable trails in Oregon.
This event will be held in concert with the Oregon Trails Summit which will be Friday, October 27th and will take place at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Central Oregon. Registration for both events can be found here! Saturday's sessions open to all; Sunday session for biking organizations.
This event wouldn’t be possible without the support of the Central Oregon Trail Alliance, Trans-Cascadia, Northwest Trail Alliance, Humm Kombucha, Backporch Coffee Roasters and Mother’s Juice Cafe.
