5 Reasons Why Cycling Tourism Matters

5 Reasons Why Cycling Tourism Matters | rural enterprise | Scoop.it

Three full days of countless conversations with fellow advocates at the National Bike Summit has made us realize the importance of bicycle tourism to the larger bike movement. One of the most interesting presentations we saw was by Douglas Meyer of Bernuth & Williamson Consulting, called “Perceptions and Possibilities.” It dealt largely with how bicycling issues, and advocacy itself, are perceived by both bike advocates and politicians. There was sometimes a fascinating disparity about what would make an effective argument for cycling. Some of the themes that surfaced were having good success stories, broadening the coalition of people that support cycling, and demonstrating how cycling can help more than just cyclists. Of course, for us, it seemed obvious that promoting Bicycle Tourism addressed many of these issues. Here are five reasons we feel that bike advocates and tourism professionals have to pay attention to bicycle tourism in the coming years.

 

#1 Bicycle Tourism is Good for Business

#2 Bicycle Tourism Bridges the Urban-Rural Divide

#3 Bicycle Tourism Revitalizes Communities

#4 Bicycle Tourism Makes Bicycling Relevant to More Than Just Bicyclists

#5 Bicycle Tourism Makes Bicycle Advocacy Easier

Type of action: ECSEL Innovation Action

Description: Action primarily consisting of activities directly aiming at producing plans and arrangements or designs for new, altered or improved products, processes or services. For this purpose
they may include prototyping, testing, demonstrating, piloting, large-scale product validation and market replication.
A 'demonstration or pilot' aims to validate the technical and economic viability of a new or improved technology, product, process, service or solution in an operational (or near to operational) environment,
whether industrial or otherwise, involving where appropriate a larger scale prototype or demonstrator.
A 'market replication' aims to support the firstapplication/deployment in the market of an innovation that has already been demonstrated but not yet applied/deployed in the market due to market
failures/barriers to uptake. 'Market replication' does not cover multiple applications in the market of an innovation 4 that has already been applied successfully once in the market. 'First' means new at least to Europe or new at least to the application sector in question. Often such projects involve a validation of technical and economic performance at system level in real life operating conditions provided by the market.
