This report attempts to provide an indicative estimate of the size and scope of cycle tourism in Australia. First, the report outlines the key facilitators of cycle tourism before outlining the market segments that can be considered part of cycle tourism, and provides an analysis of the size and scale of cycle tourism internationally. The report then outlines the potential economic, social and environmental benefits for Australia based on previous international research. The report then outlines the potential size and scope of market segments from published and unpublished data gathered from tour operators, event organisers, cycling organisations and industry associations. It ends with a conclusion and recommendations. It should be noted that this report was undertaken under a short timeframe and therefore there may be some gaps in the data and information presented.
