Cycle tourism is big business and growing, not only in our area, but across Canada and worldwide.

Those with an interest in tourism or who have a business that would like to attract more cyclists are invited to attend one of the upcoming Welcome Cyclists workshops in Windsor or Essex County.

The  2½-hour workshops are free to attend and will offer tourism businesses and organizations in Windsor, Essex County and Pelee Island the knowledge to join the Welcome Cyclists Network as a certified bicycle-friendly establishment.

Participating businesses will join an expanding provincial network and connect with the increasing number of cycle tourists and local cyclists across Ontario.

Owners, managers and/or staff of accommodations, campgrounds, cafes, restaurants, tourist attractions, bike shops and other cycling-related businesses are encouraged to attend to learn more about who cycle tourists are, what services and amenities will attract them, and how local enterprises can better cater to this growing market.

A workshop in Essex will be held on Wednesday at the Essex Civic Centre, located at  360 Fairview Avenue west from 2:30pm to 5pm.

The second workshop will be held in Windsor ion Thursday at the Holiday Inn & Suites Ambassador Bridge, located at 1855 Huron Church Road from 9am to 11:30am.
