The Mountain Bike Monitor – The basis for successful mountain bike tourism

9. March 2021
Since 2015, the Mountain Bike Monitor has established itself as a knowledge base and strategic decision-making tool for mountain bike tourism in many destinations within the German-speaking world. With the 2018 survey, we were able to gain profound insights into the target group, their values and desires as well as their behavior. Sinus-Milieus provide information about the values and desires of mountain bikers and are easily integrated into other studies and the specific strategies of any destination.

The results of the MTB Monitor 2018 can be linked to the DESTINATION BRAND 16 benchmark study on the thematic competence of German destinations by inspektour, Hamburg. In this way, representative results on the potential interest of the German population in mountain biking as a vacation topic and on the competitiveness of German mountain bike destinations are incorporated into the MTB Monitor 2018. Another new feature is the use of the Sinus-Milieus approach in collaboration with the Sinus Institute in Heidelberg.

The results of the survey provide sound knowledge about the four main target groups of mountain bikers. They shed light on specific supply requirements – especially with regards to infrastructure – and point to approaches for addressing them in marketing. Demand potentials can be predicted with knowledge about the size of target segments.

Available for the first time in this format, the MTB Monitor 2018 provides an important cornerstone for needs-based product development, calculating the market potential of offers, and successfully addressing target groups.

The focus is on the following questions from a destination perspective:

  • Where is an investment worthwhile?
  • How big is my market?
  • How do I market my offer?
