The workshop will bring local accommodation, cafe, and restaurant businesses together with event organisers and local bike businesses to discuss and learn about:
- the potential for exciting trail and wider infrastructure developments,
- potential integration with and opportunities for businesses to benefit from the UCI Cycling World Championships 2023.
