Typical business networking between vendor and client or prospective customer can take place over lunch or on the golf course. However, here's a cool and interesting article from the Economist that discusses how cycling with someone is a great way to get to know them, even (or especially) in a business context. Worth checking out.
A quote that stood out for me:
- "A younger rider can be cycling along with a chief executive and take his wind or help him in some way. You get a reversal of the normal relationship and this changes the relationship off the bike too."
