Georgia Bicycle Adventures (GBA) was invited to “pedal our stuff” with our partners Georgia Department of Economic Development-Tourism Division at their booth during the recent Georgia Municipal Association conference in Savannah on June 21 and 22nd.
We had a chance to show via the new GDEcD and GBA Bicycle Tourism Video the bicycle tourism opportunity available to Georgia communities.
Many municipal officials and fellow travelers across the state including mayors, council members, city managers, tourism officials, association members were learning about the economic benefits of catering to cyclists and bicycle travelers for the first time. Their interest and enthusiasm for Bicycle Tourism and Georgia Bicycle Adventures was heartening and gratifying.
Together with communities we are getting the wheels spinning with Bicycle Tourism For Economic Development!
Shown are GBA’s Robyn Elliott and Doug Wiley with Bruce Green, GDEcD-Tourism Division’s Director of New Product Development. The picture was taken before Doug was busted for (slowly and carefully) riding a touring bicycle up and down the aisles of the exhibit hall getting a great reaction from the attendees and raising visibility for Bicycle Tourism!
