‘The state's first designated bikeway, the 130-mile Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway between Champoeg and Eugene, has had some new route tweaks and is now mostly marked on the ground, just in time for the busy riding season.

A project by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, the Oregon Department of Transportation, Cycle Oregon and local communities, the bikeway will be promoted by tourism agencies through a four-part, Web-based map to help cyclists navigate the valley.

Additional bikeways are in the planning stages around the state, with a recent $50,000 grant from Cycle Oregon helping out. And, Travel Oregon will launch its "everything bikes" Web resource guide in May at traveloregon.com/bike.

Next on Oregon tourism's green agenda: completion of the Central Cascades Geotourism Initiative, a partnership with the National Geographic Society and local tourism groups along the spine of the Cascades, from Washington's Mount Rainier to Oregon's Crater Lake.

"This project is about developing sustainable tourism infrastructure and leaving a light footprint," said Travel Oregon's Dahl.

Through community workshops and tourism industry recommendations, a map guide and Web site (thecentralcascades.com) is under development, with completion expected this fall.

"The project will identify features in our region that make us unique in the world," Dahl said. "It will help locals understand their sense of place and identify ecological values they want to maintain. Visitors will learn about sustainable travel options in a designated geographical region."'
