ROADMAP TO BICYCLE TOURISM

We believe that bicycle tourism is a great fit for small to medium sized destinations.  But, we also understand that in small communities bandwidth and budget are often constraints to executing successful bicycle tourism campaigns.  We want to take that barrier away and jumpstart your progress to creating a successful bicycle destination by offering a personalized online consultation.

You don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Relying on over 5 years of experience exclusively working within the bicycle tourism niche in both marketing and development capacities, we will share our experience with you to help you be successful.

THIS IS NOT ANOTHER WEBINAR

I think we have all sat through well-intentioned webinars which are nothing more than on-line power point presentations, which may or may not address your specific needs.  This is not a webinar, it is an online consultation (we use Skype so we can record and provide you a copy of the session).  We will provide a boiler plate presentation that you can read at your own leisure, but this session is specifically about your community and destination.  We will listen to your current status and give you an honest evaluation of the opportunities for your destination.  We will share with you case studies of communities in similar situations (we have a quickly growing library of video and audio interviews with DMOs, CVBs, businesses and event organizers).  We will help you devise a series of low cost and actionable steps to help you develop into a bicycle destination.

We are deeply invested in the niche of bicycle tourism and want communities to succeed.   Our feedback will be honest.  We will identify the challenges and opportunities you will face so you can evaluate from the beginning if a further investment in bicycle tourism makes sense.
