The aim of the research was to determine the group of inhabitants of Lublin province as users of cycling routes in the landscape parks of Lublin province and frequency of this activity. Recreational activity in this respect was analyzed in terms of gender, age, education, place of residence and occupational status. The research was carried out using the direct survey method, which was carried out among 1203 inhabitants of the Lublin province, who were able to ride a bicycle. Statistical computations were performed
applying Statistica ver. 13 PL software, using non-parametric tests: the Mann-Whitney U test, the Kruskal-Wallis test, and the median test. Following conclusions have been drawn from the research: a typical user of cycling routes is a young person up to 30 years of age, still learning and/or pursuing a freelance occupation. Therefore, when developing new bicycle routes in the landscape parks, they should be adjusted to this age group of participants. Young people going on a bike tour are expecting to download mobile applications that will allow to get acquainted with the most interesting attractions on the itinerary, as well as QR code images on the information boards. There are pensioners who can be attracted to cycling routes in the landscape parks, providing them with the necessary infrastructure (benches, information boards, fireplaces/BBQs, relaxation areas) and organizing guided bike tours with
trainers or animators.
