Central Shenandoah Valley Bicycling Survey
We need your input for the Central Shenandoah Valley Bicycling Survey! Please take a few minutes to tell us about your experience biking in our area whether you biked for one day or ride every day, whether it was riding with an organized event or tour, to commute, or just for fun on the area's roads or trails.
This survey is for both visitors to the area and residents, and will be open for responses until mid-November. As a thank you for completing the survey, you are invited to enter a drawing to win a variety of prizes from area businesses. The prize drawings will take place in November 2015.
Results from the survey will be used in the development of a Bicycle Economic Impact Analysis Report, which will assess the economic impact of bicycle-related tourism and business in the region. The analysis and report will assist the region in directing future marketing efforts, focusing improvements to regional bicycle facilities, and improving or expanding the offering of bicycle-related events.
Sponsors of the survey and study are: Shenandoah County Tourism, Bryce Resort, City of Harrisonburg Tourism, Rockingham County, Massanutten Resort, Greater Augusta Regional Tourism, Lexington & the Rockbridge Area Tourism, and the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition.
