Another feature that can showcase the beauty of Central Oregon is about to become declares as a scenic bikeway. Visit Bend President Doug La Placa says the Three Sisters Scenic Bikeway has been a collaborative project they have been working on for about three years. "Were at a very exciting stage. One of the four routes within the scenic bikeway has already received the official state designation. And the Twin Bridges Loop, which starts and ends in Bend, the final application was submitted to the State this week and we expect to receive the official designation sometime in November." La Placa says once the bikeway is designated, they can receive funds to help promote the bikeway while promoting Bend as a tourist designation, and for road improvements. La Placa says the ultimate goal is to have scenic bikeways that connect Bend to Sisters, Sisters to Redmond, and Redmond to Bend for a very beautiful loop in Central Oregon.
