BikeMaine 2017 is Coming to the Lakes & Mountains Region:

Learn How to Make Your Business “Bicycle Friendly”

Bicycle Tourism is a fast-growing segment of the Recreation Tourism Industry – in fact, Bicycle Tourists spend approximately 20% MORE than other tourists, and tend to stay in an area longer. The annual economic impact from Bicycle Tourism in Maine exceeds $66 million…let’s tap into that!
With BikeMaine 2017 and its 400 bicyclists coming to the Lakes & Mountains region for the week of September 9-16, NOW is the perfect time to learn more about what your business can do to attract bicycle tourists. Thanks to the generous support of Franklin Savings Bank, the Bicycle Coalition of Maine is offering FREE “Bicycles WelcoME” trainings in the region.
“Bicycles WelcoME” offers insight into what sets bicycle riders apart from other market segments, and how you can tap into their enthusiasm for the sport to attract and hold their business.  The training features extended Q&A sessions, with topics including:

  • Becoming a “Bicycles WelcoME” Business
  • What Opportunities Does BikeMaine 2017 Provide?
  • Easy Steps to Attract and Keep Bicycle Tourists as Customers
  • The Economics of Bicycle Tourism
  • Types of Bicycle Tourism

“Bicycles WelcoME” certification is about recognizing and serving the needs of bicycle riders at a level that makes sense for your business, in order to help your business attract and keep this valuable market.
