Local officials in Florida today hosted Pedaling to Ecotourism Success: A Summit on Cycling and Trails.
South Lake, Florida, a popular destination for bicyclists, will soon see even greater popularity with the finalization of the Coast to Coast Connecter. The Coast to Coast Connecter is a 275-mile hiking and biking trail that stretches from Cape Canaveral all the way to St. Petersburg.
Ecotourism in Florida is on the rise as attractions such as the Everglades National Park and the Florida Keys, and opportunities for green lodging become more popular. Florida is also great for bicyclists. Bicycling is a large part of eco and experiential travel. The adventure element of bicycling makes it a popular adventure travel activity. As a form of transportation, bicycling reduces emissions, making it very eco-friendly.
The completion of this trail makes for a great opportunity to promote ecotourism and bicycling in the area for growth, and what better way to promote this than with an event on bicycling and ecotourism.
Pedaling to Eco-Tourism Success was held today for the public from 8:30a.m to noon at the Clermont City Center. The summit was sponsored by the county government, the Lake-Sumter Metropolitan Planning Organization, and the Chamber Alliance of Lake County.
The summit covered ecotourism opportunities that are created by major trails, as well as the economic opportunities that result from the cycling attraction.
