"Bike Friendly" is a well-known synonym for services tailored to cyclists. Services marked in this way are facilities / services / attractions, etc. which meet the minimum standards adapted to cyclists and their needs, ie. entities that are recognized for their efforts to create a pleasant atmosphere for cyclists.
"Bike Friendly Standard" is a program within which, for the needs of cycling tourism, recognition and certification is given to service providers who, fulfilling the conditions, support cycling tourism experiences.
The certification process will consist of: application of interested entities for certification for one of the above categories, one workshop in the municipality of Herceg-Novi, the process of contracting certification with entities, one-on-one field visits to locations of entities to prepare for certification. Eligibility for obtaining a certificate will be limited in time due to the duration of the project, the visit of an independent evaluator to verify the fulfillment of conditions and the award of the certificate.
