Training

We are well versed in what cyclists need, want and expect since our holidays, or every available free moment in our everyday life, for that matter, is spent on two wheels. This experience and knowledge came together with our professional expertise and resulted in a specialized training program that is immensely important when you're trying to build a successful tourist destination.

The training programme is modular; tailor-made for various groups of providers in tourism and its associated services: training for cyclists, training for restaurateurs and accommodation providers as well as for the local community for a more effective tourist reception and further development of cycling.

Cycling guide training

Cycling guides are people who, just like you, love cycling, but are familiar with every part of a certain location; every track, curve, climb, rest stop and know all the interesting stories by heart. They lead the guests, without fail, through the most beautiful locations and turn a nice ride into a bike adventure you will remember. Organised, motivated and skillfully trained cycling guides are a necessity in every modern cycle-tourism offer and they can make all the difference when tourists are deciding if your destination should be chosen for their next active holiday.

The Trail training programme provides cycling guides with full set of skills that enables them to independently lead groups on bikes, explore cycling routes, take care of small injuries, fix malfunctions in the field and present each destination and its cultural and historical specifics in a captivating way. The development of this new service will create jobs in tourism and further encourage self-employment of cycling guides.

Restaurateurs and accommodation providers

When it comes to service, cyclists make for special guests with specific demands but these expectations,  when they are met by service providers, come with a great deal of added value.

Taining restaurateurs is aimed at ensuring that the gastro and accommodation needs specific to cyclists are met, technical conditions are ensured and their general habits and wants are well known.

Supporting the local community

The development of a successful cycle-tourism destination requires an adjustment in how natural and cultural resources are managed and opened toward new sources of project (co)financing and investments.

Through Trail, we foster relationships between local government, businesses, cycling clubs, local agencies, public institutions, farms and other subjects involved in tourism with the goal to create the highest possible level of economic valorisation and commercialization that the development of cycling tourism provides.

Cycling tourism is a part of rural tourism and the social and economic effects of its development are remarkably important in less developed tourist destinations as well as less developed areas of Croatia. Due to their spatial conservation and cultural authenticity, rural areas are the most attractive to cyclists, which is why investing in the development of this particular tourism product helps preserving existing jobs and creating new ones while improving the overall economic and social development of certain regions.
