WORK 12 - SPARKING MOUNTAIN BIKING IN NORWAY

By: Darco Cazin October 22, 2016

The project Trakk n‘Roll aims to create growth in the Norwegian region of Hallingdal, through the development of the mountain bike offer. The network of trails and mountain roads is extensive, the scenery is outstanding and a lot of the infrastructure is already in place.

But Trakk n‘Roll is about more than markets and infrastructure. It‘s a project by mountain bikers, for mountain bikers. Therefore it‘s the local cyclists who are actively involved and contributing to the project, by using the MTB AGENT app and creating a broad overview with insights about the current state of Hallingdal and its destinations.

Mountainbiken verstärkt in Medien präsent - strategische Planung wichtig

By: Chris Posch May 17, 2016

Der Winterstart im Dezember 2015 hat viel Aufregung erzeugt. 0,14 Grad Celsius globale Erderwärmung im Vergleich zu den wärmsten Jahren 2005, 2010 und 2014. Hubschrauber flogen Schnee auf die Piste, Urlauber in tieferen Regionen waren flexibel und haben sich auf Wandern oder Biken eingestellt. Hauptsache Urlaub, Hauptsache Erholung. In Tirol: Wenig bis keine Nächtigungseinbußen im Saisondurchschnitt, vor allem dank starkem März. In anderen Regionen sah es hier sicherlich schlechter aus. Und wie sieht es mit der Wertschöpfung aus? Skiverleih, Bergbahn, usw.? Kritiker bezweifeln die hohen Investitionen in Schneemaschinen und Co. Befürworter sind froh, dass Millionen in die Wirtschaft investiert werden.

Mountainbiking’s importance is constantly picking up

By: Chris Posch May 12, 2016

As the winter season seems to become more and more unpredictable around the world and with 2015 being the warmest year ever recorded with globally 0,14 degree Celsius above the warmest years in 2005, 2010 and 2014, some alpine destinations already reconsidered their strategic investments into mountain biking years ago.

Winter is still most important for the (tourism) economy in the alps and driving high investments in infrastructure. But especially after the “almost no natural snow December 2015”, the question on a lot of people’s mind is, whether many of these investments are sustainable with the climate predictions ahead. It seems that less and less snow will continue to challenge the ski resorts and winter destinations.

Mountain biking in spring, summer, autumn and also in winter is constantly picking up momentum in alpine destinations and if well planned helps to generate value all season long.

THE WINTER IS OVER - LOOKING BACK AT THE FAT BIKING SEASON

By: Claude Balsiger March 14, 2016

On November 3rd 2015 we published our first fat bike report, predicting fat biking to grow step by step into a serious subculture of mountain biking. We got a ton of feedback on our report and our friends at MCF even translated it to a French version. However, we are still amazed at the quantity of new offers, solutions and surprising developments we witnessed during the past winter.
