  • Hi Bret. Welcome to bikes stackexchange. I unfortunately had to flag this as too broad as there won’t be a single answer to your question and any answer is likely going to be too specific for the circumstances. This would be a better question for a chat forum such as reddit or our own chat room. – RoboKaren Aug 16 '18 at 17:14

You need land, liability insurance, money, and volunteer leaders. But how you get all three will vary tremendously by locale. – RoboKaren Aug 16 '18 at 17:22

    True. I may be overthinking it. The challenge I'm addressing is that I see a need, but the culture in this region doesn't recognize it. There are some other things I'm doing to change the culture (trying to open rail trails, etc) but I don't know how to develop a culture around a sport in a vacuum. I'm hoping someone says, "Yeah, it was like that here, and ..." – Bret Aug 16 '18 at 17:34
