Publisher to help promote Cytech training scheme

Future teams up with the ACT

Future Publishing and the Association of Cycle Traders (ACT) have joined forces to help publicise the Cytech training and accreditation scheme for cycle mechanics.

Future’s vast cycling portfolio will include the Cytech logo on product testing pages to support the ACT. The publisher already employs a Cytech-trained cycle mechanic

Editor-in-chief of Future’s cycling titles John Stevenson said: “The practical and theory tests required to pass a Cytech course ensure our bikes have been properly set up to manufacturer’s guidelines and British Standards.

“We believe good service is crucial to ongoing growth in the cycling sector and we’re happy to help the Association of Cycle Traders promote this programme,” he added.

The ACT’s Mark Brown added: 

“Future gives us a great platform to promote Cytech to a very wide audience, thereby increasing awareness of the technical skills and services which cycle retailers invest in to support their customers.”
