Description

This exciting new workshop, presented by Developing Mountain Biking in Scotland, funded by Scottish Enterprise and LEADER, is for you - if you run a tourism business or a cycling business in Galashiels, Melrose or Selkirk area and want to grow your business and attract more visitors!

This event is hosted by the new Tweed Valley Mountain Bike Development Coordinator who's role it is to help improve the visitor experience for those coming to ride the outstanding roads and trails we have here in the Tweed Valley area.

With the world class trails in Glentress and Innerleithen along the valley, the trails and road routes in the local area can be overlooked and we hope to look at how the current offer for cycling in this area can be improved.

We will be holding a general Tweed Valley event on October 4th, but this session is more discussion focused and about identifying the best way to take steps to improve the experience in this local area.

What you will find out at this event:

- Insights on the key types of cyclists and where they might want to ride

- Information from local bike service providers and what they can currently offer to your visitors

- Tools & intelligence available on the DMBinS website such as footage and maps of mountain bike routes

- Discussion around maximising the benfit from the railway and improving the visitor journey

- A 'What next?' creative session helping you to come up with innovative ideas for us all to make the most of the opportunities in mountain biking tourism

- Information on the refresh of the Tweed Valley cycle friendly approved scheme

- Introducing the Bike Hotel concept that we hope to see rolled out in Scotland and piloted here in the Tweed Valley
