Development of Mountain Bicycle Tourism in Haiti
As a non-profit organization, IMBA frequently consults with other non-profits whose goals align with ours. In the case of the Travelcology and Citi5, IMBA's Trail Solutions program advised the promotors of the Mountain Bike Haiti Adventure Tourism Incubator Program program as way to recover from the devastating earthquake in 2010. Helping to develop environmentally and economically sustainable mountain bicycle tourism is one of the areas in which Trail Solutions specializes, from the distressed economies of rural Oregon to the storied ski resort of the Swiss Alps.
Travelcology is promoting a great opportunity for interested volunteers to join their efforts and travel to Haiti for a mountain bicycling film project. Details and the link are on IMBA's Facebook page and on Travelcology's contest page.
