This evening (Wednesday 23rd September) almost 200 members of the cycle industry squeezed into the Crowne Plaza Hotel at the NEC, Birmingham to celebrate the high achievers of the year at the BikeBiz Awards 2015.
Nineteen awards were won by retailers, distributors, brands, service providers and more on the industry prize night.
The two new (and hotly contested) awards of the night - Cycle Café and Breakthrough Brand - were won by Look Mum No Hands and Fabric, respectively.
A number of bike firms managed the impressive feat of landing two awards, with independent bike dealer Hargroves Cycles and JE James both winning a brace of prizes.
The BikeBiz Awards 2015 were backed by Platinum Sponsor Cycleguard. Individual Award sponsors include Cycle Republic, Rozone and Stique. Cycleguard also provided an extra prize draw on the night, won by a lucky attendee.

The BikeBiz Awards 2015 were - as always - decided by the cycle trade. Hundreds of our readers lobbied for each of the categories and 70 members of the cycle trade decided which of the finalists deserved to win.
All members of the cycle trade were invited to be a judge and a full list of the 70 who took part in the judging will be published in November’s BikeBiz.
