Developing Mountain Biking in Scotland - Workshops in Galashiels and Tweed Valley
Galashiels, Selkirk and Melrose Cycling Workshop
The event is intended to improve the understanding of how cycling can benefit local businesses in the area, explaining what is currently on offer and how we are working to improve that offer.
Format - We will discuss what makes a business bike friendly, the different types of cycling markets you can tap into and how to do that. The railway offers a new and exciting link into this region and we will look at how businesses can tap into this new journey.
Local businesses in the cycling industry will be given the opportunity to pitch what they do and suggest ways they can package their services with others. The goal of the event is to get businesses better informed and working together to improve the cycling visitor’s journey.
It is all about getting the area excited about the potential for cycle tourism.
There are limited cyclist visitors to just Galashiels so this will include Melrose and Selkirk area. Book your space & find out more
