National Bicycle Tourism Conference
« on: November 01, 2013, 02:01:09 am »
I'm just wondering if anybody will be attending the National Bicycling Tourism Conference (http://www.bicycletournetwork.org/conference/) next week.  I'll be traveling there by myself.  I actually don't know anybody but would like to meet new people if anybody is going.  I'm actually really excited about it!  I'm pretty much paying for this trip and taking time off of work to attend.  I should be in town on Tuesday afternoon if anybody would like to meet prior to the conference.  You can reach me through various social network outlets found on my blog, http://milestonerides.com or DM for a cell number!

Cheers,
Johnny

Thanks for the links! Looks like it will be fun and educational if you're in the industry but probably a total snoozer if you're just a bike touring client, like me.

Hope you have a good time and learn tons of new stuff that will help you create excellent touring experiences for your future clients. Looking at your blog, though, maybe you're more of a rider, perhaps aspiring to lead others. I only do supported tours these days.

I see on the agenda that the driving force behind Ride Idaho, Earl Grief, is handling the Rest Stop discussion. If you attend that session, please give him my regards.

I play go. I use Macintosh. Of course I ride a recumbent

Thank you bogiesan for your candid response.  I'll get to see this first hand to see if this will be worth my time but I'm keeping my mind open.  I am a rider but I do want to see what are some career options out there.

DM me your name so I can give my regards to Earl.

Cheers,
Johnny
