Trails Section Advertising
Our Trails section has over 250 bike trails. Each page shows multiple color photos of the trail, plus a detailed trail description, access instructions, and a trail map. The Trails section received 8000 visits per week during 2007.
You can purchase placement of a banner, half-banner, or logo on any page. Maximum is three advertisers per page. (Even if you see multiple ads on the page, check with us for availability. Some ads are unpaid promotions, others are our own internal advertising.) Yearly price is $15 per half-banner, $20 for a full-banner.
An advertiser can also adopt a specific trail for "exclusive sponsorship":
While any business can sponsor a Trail Page, we think the ideal advertiser is a motel, eatery, or bike shop near the trail. This gives the ideal balance: the advertiser's message is viewed by bikers who are planning to come to the area, and bikers are made aware of services near the trail. Here's a sample:

As you review our Trail pages, ignore any advertisement for medical software, books, DVDs, or UMB on-line store items. These advertisements are simply a "placeholder ads." If you see no other business mentioned on the page, it is available for you to occupy with your advertising!
Cost of exclusive sponsorship of a single Trail page is $100 per year. Supply us with your logo or art work, descriptive text, and store photo. Or refer us to your web page, and we'll grab some art to modify and convert to advertising for you.
