The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts the fitness field will grow 27 percent from 2006 to 2016.
When I read this, I immediately thought of an enormous opportunity to increase cycling. Then I had to unfortunately ask myself what I am doing to promote cycling. Sadly, I only had a few answers. Underground races do not really promote cycling, so the AES is out. I volunteer at races from time to time, but I have not in quite sometime.
I pose the question to you now.
What are you doing to increase the amount of cyclists? Build a trail. Be kind on the trail. Volunteer at a race. The list goes on and on.
New training goals should be coupled with new ways to promote cycling. My new plans to help promote cycling: volunteer at a race in the next 4 months, finalize plans for AZSF09 and work on the Arizona Trail as soon as I can.
