Biking in Oregon is about to get even better!
The Washington County Visitors Association (WCVA), along with elected officials and cycling representatives, will officially launch the Tualatin Valley Scenic Bikeway during a ribbon cutting and sign unveiling, Monday, September 16, 2013 at 9:00 a.m., at the River House at Rood Bridge Park (4000 SE Rood Bridge Road, Hillsboro, Ore.).
The bikeway was a multi-year effort among the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, Travel Oregon, and the WCVA, in concert with representatives from biking and community groups throughout the region.
“The Tualatin Valley Scenic Bikeway will position Washington County as a premier cycling destination in Oregon,” said Carolyn McCormick, president and CEO of the WCVA. “This new recreational asset will attract a new segment of visitors to our area, which will, in turn, increase visitor spending at our wineries, restaurants, lodging properties and other attractions.”
Set in the heart of Washington County, the 50-mile bikeway features the best of the northern Willamette Valley, from friendly downtowns to fertile farmlands and lush natural areas, and includes the Banks-Vernonia State Trail.
