New York's bicycle trails provide more than 1,200 miles of public access to natural beauty and outdoor activity and are a growing part of outdoor recreational tourism. Bicycling is the 3rd most popular recreation activity, according to the Outdoor Industry Association. Empire State Bed and Breakfast Association in partnership with Parks & Trails NY created The Bicyclists Welcome! Program. All members of ESBBA are subject to an evaluation, including such features as hospitality, cleanliness, and customer service. The Bicyclist Welcome! recognition program evaluates B&Bs according to criteria important to bicyclists, such as: a covered and locked location to store bicycles at night; a pump and tools for making minor repairs; information about local bicycle services; no-smoking rooms; and a breakfast that takes into account bicyclists' nutritional needs, including fruits, vegetables, and high-carb foods.
