The aim of the workshops is to help the holders of tourism development from the area through which the trail passes, but also from all over Herzegovina, to objectively analyze the current position and condition, and to jointly establish preconditions for future development through the creation of a document that will be systematically, coordinated and planned to deal with the management of the Ćiro bicycle path, thereby ensuring its functionality and sustainability, but also to be one of the generators of tourism development in the entire project area.
At the workshop, certificates of the Bike Friendly standard were delivered to the owners of facilities from the Stolac and Ravno areas, who in the previous period had successfully completed the activities of harmonizing their business with the requirements of the standard.
