Door County Silent Sports Alliance maintains that recreation is important for all aspects of life and indeed forms a lifestyle.  In Door County we are blessed with a multitude of parks and waters to recreate on.  However, one of the major silent sports is noticeably absent on the peninsula, and that is mountain biking. DCSSA is currently working with national and regional trail building and advocacy experts, and local property managers and officials, to establish a county-wide purpose built trail system in Door County that will appeal to everyone. Even though mountain biking is the driving force behind these trails, the majority of trails planned would support and appeal to multiple user groups such as walkers, hikers, runners, snowshoers, and fat bikers.

 


Mountain biking has stimulated the economy in numerous areas where high quality trail systems have been built. There are several areas in the Midwest that have benefited substantially from this approach by establishing and executing on plans to draw mountain bike tourists. A few of these are Duluth (MN), Marquette (MI), Copper Harbor (MI), and the Cable (WI) area trail systems, all of which have earned IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Association) Ride Center designations which are recognized and promoted world wide. Door County already has the all the existing infrastructure and attractions to capitalize on the enhanced tourist visits. Door County residents, tourists, and businesses could benefit greatly from the added tourist draw, especially since these types of trails will draw tourists in the critical shoulder and winter seasons. 

 


Not only are the trails instrumental in redirecting local young people from inside to outside and healthier pursuits, but also to the local business owner, who will see the dramatic effect that a high quality, well planned trail system has in increasing tourism. Benefits of a trail system are many, and effect a wide spectrum of the local population.

 


Whether you are a parent concerned about you children’s health, a teen who wants to be able to bike on fun, purpose built trails, or someone who would use the new trails for walking or snowshoeing, please help spread the word. Business owners, add your support and help draw bike tourists during the critical shoulder seasons and attract winter fat bike and snowshoe tourists.
