Media Salon tonight! | Bent

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Media Salon tonight!

Posted By on Mon, Jun 10, 2013 at 9:31 AM

Every second Monday of the month, the Source hosts a smashingly fun and smart Media Salon!
This month we focus on bikes—one of Bend’s greatest obsessions. (Beer, one of Bend’s other great obsessions, also will be on tap and flowing.) The casual Think & Drink, Q&A-style event is a follow up to our famous Bike Issue, which hit stands last week.
To fully explore Bend’s two-wheeled fanaticism, we’re bringing in a topflight panel, with experts from across cycling spectrum.
Doug LaPlaca, Visit Bend CEO/president (and super-strong road racer) will discuss the bike industry’s economic impact on Bend as well that of national-level races hosted in Central Oregon.
John Frey, Hutch’s bike shop manager (and downhill shredder), explains the latest in bike tech—including Bend’s fascination with Strava, a social-media app for the hyper-competitive.
And David Blair, Travel Oregon consultant (and mountain bike fiend), takes on Phil’s Trail development and infrastructure.

Media Salon: Bikes in Bend
7 pm Monday, June 10
Broken Top Bottle Shop, 1740 NW Pence Lane, Suite 1
