Bike Tourism for Small Towns
In this video, Laura of Path Less Pedalled talks about the potential economic benefits of bike tourism for small towns in the US. She makes sense. Let's take for example a trip from Saud in Pagudpud to Laoag City. If you travel by car, you'd probably just make one stop--in Pasuquin, for some Biscocho for merienda. That's it.
But if you travel or tour by bike (like I've done a couple of times before) between the same two points, you'll make more stops, which would lead you to rest and take meriendas in Bangui, Burgos, Brgy. Davila in North Pasuquin and Bacarra. You'll meet more people along the way, buy more goods, and this would somehow help improve the local economy.
