ABSTRACT

The use of bicycle has become a popular transportation mode for leisure, recreation, and tourism. In particular, bicycle usage for travel activity has been regarded as a suitable strategy for developing sustainable tourism in rural/regional areas. However, current literature on bicycle tourism has not been widely discussed and underestimated in the field of tourism industry. This study, therefore, firstly defined existing definitions of bicycle tourism and conceptualized it by establishing a theoretical framework. Then, based on a close look at the previous literature, the study reviewed the travel behavior of bicycle tourists and estimated the market size of bicycle tourism. It also reviewed current research/practical activities on bicycle tourism. Based on these reviews and examination, this study discussed several implications for boosting bicycle tourism in Korea.
