Just because YOU don't think it's a great idea, doesn't make up for those who DO want it.

For that same year the bicycle tourism industry accounted for 44B euros ...

In 2014 Michigan logged $668MM in benefits to the economy from employment, retail revenue, tourism expenditure, and increased health and productivity ...

The $6MM estimation in the original report might be low ...

Money well spent ... can't wait to see what happens with the Trans-Canada Trail opening this year ...

Good price. Good news. Good investment in the future. I talked to one native entrepreneur who wants to build a group of kekulis, upgraded of course with modern lining and fixtures, for rental on the course.
