Ever wonder how much of an impact trail users have on the local economy? The Calgary Mountain Bike Alliance and Mount Royal College are conducting a Survey on the economic impact of trail use. It not only relates to mountain biking, but to all trail use, including cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and hiking.
This type of information is important to people who offer grants, “What kind of economic benefit will your trails add to the community?” Your answers to these survey questions will help gauge the total economic impacts of various trail user groups in different areas. Please consider taking this survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/cmbalink5.
Please forward the above link to all of your friends. The more people who take it, the better the results are. It is short and should only take five minutes to finish. The survey ends midnight April 1st, and we will make the results public shortly afterwords.
As an added bonus for helping us out, you can enter your name and email at the end of the survey for a chance to win a $200 prize pack from Mountain Equipment Co-op. See all the goodies above. An MEC backpack, hiking socks, Gore-tex gaiters, and a $100 MEC gift card, plus a copy of Gillean’s Kananaskis Country Trail Guide, Volume 1.
