Here are some quotes from the Titusville Groundbreaking in November 

"We are a state people want to come to, they want to come here to get outdoors." Said Governor Scott. "As we add more bike trails, more connectors, it means we are going to have more tourists."

According to Florida Today.com, Titusville Mayor Jim Tulley expects the trail, which is also part of a system that stretches from Miami to Maine [the ECG], will become a major tourist attraction for a city transitioning to ecotourism.

"These trails are not just nice to have as amenities, they are truly providing economic advantage for our state," Tulley said. "I expect we will be able to attract tourism visitors from across the country and literally around the world.”

Green tourists

I know that what Governor Scott and Mayor Tulley say about attracting tourists is true -  we have already met through cyclists from all over the US and some from Europe who come to ride Florida's trails and bikable areas.  They love our awesome scenery and pleasant weather - but many are concerned about and deterred by riding along highways like US1 with rough, narrow shoulders - or sometimes no shoulder at all.   These new connector links and gap closures will really put us on the cycling itinerary for many more cyclists.  .
