Adventure Cycling’s Executive Director to Visit Oberlin and Cleveland February 25

Will promote new historic 518-mile cycling route during National Black History Month

Jim Sayer, executive director of Adventure Cycling Association, the largest membership cycling organization in North America with more than 43,500 members, will visit Oberlin and Cleveland during a weeklong trip to Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. His visit is aimed at promoting the organization’s new cycling route, the Underground Railroad Detroit Alternate, as well as sharing news about the growing interest in bike travel and tourism.

The new 518-mile Detroit Alternate will guide touring cyclists through important communities and landmarks in the Underground Railroad’s history from Oberlin, Ohio, to Owen Sound, Ontario. The original route — a 2,000-mile route between Mobile, Alabama, and Owen Sound — was developed under a partnership between Adventure Cycling and the Center for Minority Health at the University of Pittsburgh.

In Oberlin and Cleveland Sayer will speak at two free public events for area cyclists. He is also available for interviews.

Just hosted Jim for the past couple days in Detroit. He has a presentation about bike tourism, the new Underground Railroad Bicycle Route, and more that you don't want to miss.

We had some good media coverage, including this article in the Huffington Post.
