Heard on radio this morning that the average long distance bicycle rider spends nearly 70 bucks a day to ride in our state. They had someone on talking about how important it is to make them feel welcome etc....

I spend at least that on gas and junk food in michigan a day.... on my way through to another state that welcomes me...

If you do a quick search for Chuck Nelson and his ORV studies you will se we fall short of that. Sleders had been at the top but don't know about now. Chuck said at one of the many meeting we were at, ORV riders need to change this for the business community to support us. The motel room numbers vs. camping was the big one. Shear numbers are another factor, Memorial Day weekend in TC they had 7,000 runners for the marathon.
