It's the final issue of the year, so you can find the results of the 2015 Retail Survey within the pages, starting from page 48. How did the nation's independent retailers fare in '15? Read all about it in the mag.
You can start to plan ahead for 2016 with a look at the shows kicking off the New Year, including Core Bike, The Bike Place and the London Bike Show. Speaking of shows, there's also a review of Zyro's enlarged Cycle Vision Show, featuring retail guru Mary Portas and plenty of new product.
Our big trade interview of the month is with Kryptonite boss Nick Watkin, who fills us in on Kryptonite owner Allegion's acquisition of lock brand AXA.
Our in-depth Regional Spotlight feature returns in the December issue, this time looking at Ireland and Northern Ireland. We speak to journalists, retailers, brands, event organisers and many more who appraise the pros and cons of the markets for us.
And there's chance for you to revel in the glory of the second Cycling Media Awards.
Plus there's all our regulars; opinions, Q&As with the personalities of the cycle trade, e-bikes, sector guides on footwear and on wheels, tubes and tyres, tips for bike shops and much more. But don't take my word for it, open up your latest issue of BikeBiz or read it online.
