In the News: OBRA Director Kenji on Recreation and Tourism

In a timely note just before 2000 riders descend on Salem for the Monster Cookie, BTA board member, OBRA Executive Director, and CATC member Kenji Sugahara has a piece in the Statesman's "My Passion" series today. He writes about his first childhood bicycling memory, about taking it up again in adulthood, and about the economic benefits of bike tourism. Check it out!

A childhood interest in bike riding is definitely a lifelong benefit. I'm working very hard to build that in my nearly 2 year old daughter. I'll even be taking her along on the first half of the Monster Cookie in a bike trailer. She is very excited about it already.

Hooray! The sky looks pretty clear and we'll probably have terrific weather for the Cookie today. I hope you have a great ride!
