Study Shows $7.8 Million Economic Impact of Mountain Bike Trails
There are definitely examples of over-tourism around the globe, and I think certain locations in Colorado are examples of this, much to the frustration of locals. That said, there are literally hundreds of examples around the world where mountain bike tourism dollars have revitalized communities. Fruita is a great destination to play outside but it’s no surprise that it sees a tonne of tourist traffic because of its geographic location between two cities with a combined population of 1 million. You mention sales and lodging tax - add to this the money injected into small businesses such as restaurants, bike shops, breweries, cafes, privately run accommodations. I’m sure the “lower-paying service industry jobs” workers see great benefit from the tourism dollars being injected into their communities. There is a correlation between tourism and higher real estate prices but the alternative is what?.. No visitors and no money being injected into town meaning less jobs, lower wages but cheaper housing!? The issue that you see in Fruita of tourism dollars not translating into better city infrastructure probably has nothing to do with where the money is coming from but more so how the money is spent by, (and the priorities of) your local government.

@swansong: It's probably because 'those beers' are actually espresso.
