Road Cycling Nationals Championships to Increase Tourism 

From June 22-27, Bend will once again be hosting the USA Junior, U23 & Elite Road Cycling National Championships and the USA Paracycling NationalChampionships.

Dear Residents of Bend,

From June 22-27, Bend will once again be hosting the USA Junior, U23 & Elite Road Cycling National Championships and the USA Paracycling National Championships. Similar to last year, this event will bring more than 2,500 visitors to Bend from every state in the country and will generate nearly $1.5 million in direct tourist spending. In addition to the immediate economic stimulus, national events like this also lead to long term benefits in the form of in-migration of new residents and new businesses - both of which are critical to the long term economic health of our community.

But equally as important as the economic impact of this event, the week ahead is an opportunity for all of us to get outdoors, have some fun, and enjoy the inspiring athleticism that will be taking place in our hometown. It is also an opportunity to put our best foot forward as a community at a time when media across the country seem intent on painting a dire picture of our local economy.
Please join me in welcoming the USA Cycling athletes and their families, please drive with caution and give the cyclists a little extra room on the road.

Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for Bend tourism.

All the best,

- Doug La Placa,
Visit Bend executive director
