Bend continues with a reputation for being a bicycling mecca, and now is chosen as a location for a very special cycling event. The Oregon Bicycle Constructors Association has decided to move their handmade bike show from Portland to Bend. "You know the handmade bike culture in Oregon is one of the most vibrant in the country, in that there will be over 40 handmade bike manufacturers from the State of Oregon displaying there bikes, which are beautiful. Beautiful bikes, and very artistic and they'll be displaying them at the show." Visit Bend's Doug La Placa says the handmade bike show will occur in tandem with the Halloween Cyclocross Crusades in later October. The Crusades typically attracts about 1000 contestants and many more spectators. La Placa says these two events are the largest and most prestigious cycling events in the northwest. He adds their timing is perfect because October is generally considered a slow tourism season.
