Successful Bike & Outdoor Recreation Tourism


Since 2009, we have looked at travel and tourism through an advocacy and community development lens. What makes a community bike-friendly? What are travelers looking for in an outdoor recreation destination? What makes a place stand out against other similar locations?

Over the years, we’ve connected with hundreds of community members and business owners, and we’ve looked at what works and what doesn’t. The lessons we’ve learned – for building a successful destination, as well as marketing one – inform our client work and our advocacy.

Whether you’re at the beginning of an initiative or looking to fine-tune your offerings, whether you want to do it yourselves or hire us to help make it happen, you’ll find a wealth of tips and lessons learned and next steps.
