As a lifelong activity, cycling appeals to children, families and adults, reaching a broad audience that goes beyond traditional demographics. Cycling is the second most popular recreational activity in the world, attracting significant public attention with a high media presence. It offers an exciting, results driven, technologically innovative sport in a healthy, environmentally sound format.
Company logos are prominently displayed on the team’s website, social media outreach, and printed materials. Bicycle racing can be expensive for active competitors, with racing bikes in excess of $2,000. Bakker's Trailblazers uses its budget to defray the cost of team uniforms, coaching fees and race support.
