August 30, 2006 11:00 pm

Three Web sites of interest to bicyclists interested in Northeastern Oregon are operating.

is the creation of recent transplant Eric Schubert, who recently moved into town to settle for a year and write a book about cross-country bicycle touring.

The site is being used mainly to help educate out of town cyclist about the area, Schuber said. He plans to use a part of the site to help local cyclists network with each other and stay informed on local rides and events. He plans on building a discussion forum for local cyclists to use to discuss all aspects of cycling, and will even be offering free blog/journal hosting for any Baker City resident who may wish to start logging their rides.

has information about routes, suggested rides, special events and trail work for both mountain bikers and road cyclists, including the Archery Range trail system on Mount Emily. The site includes a blog on current trail conditions and where road construction or new chip sealing interrupts road cycling routes.

is the home page for a regional organization for bikers, runners, skiers, equestrians and others who use trail in Northeastern Oregon.
