Abstract [Abstrakt]:
Event tourism is perceived as a systematic planning and development of image-building factors and attractiveness of tourist destinations. Organizing sport events such as cycling race series on mountain bikes can be one of the instruments of destination management, or rather its components of event tourism. In our case, we chose the races with more than 15 years of tradition, "Bike for Life of Česká spořitelna" and "Author marathon tour". We analysed the spatial distribution of individual racing series in terms of their potential use for tourism and monitored attributes of tourism in municipalities with extended powers. The results show that the attractiveness of the landscape environment may be a deciding factor in decision of participation in bike events and tourism.
