100 issues in and still rolling, BikeBiz's May print magazine is now available to read online or download here.

According to Coliped, UK bicycle manufacture has dropped by 50 per cent since BikeBiz's first issue back in 2006 (nothing to do with us, honest!), so we thought it fitting to celebrate those still producing and thriving domestically with an in depth look at British producers, which you can read on pages 23 through 30.

On page 9, Carlton Reid reports on the launch of the Lee Valley Velopark, also drawing on cycling star Laura Trott's thoughts on the industry funded Go Ride programme.

Claud Butler are profiled on page 13, with Dave Drury explaining how the team aims to return the label to its former glory.

To celebrate Herrmans' 55th anniversary, BikeBiz headed to Finland for a few days. Find out what this manufacturer is doing behind the scenes to improve the industry's bicycles on page 17/18.

Sticking with the European manufacturing theme, ABUS talks about beating gold security standards on page 21.

Having recently changed its entire business model, Foffa Bikes of London are looking to work with independent bike stores. Read more about the journey so far and how your shop can work with the label on page 33.

Overleaf, DMR's classic V12 revamp is launched. As with the prior version, Upgrade are expecting this £49.99 pedal to be a big seller. See page 34 for the reasons why.

In what we're told is a UK first, BikeBiz interviews Chariot founder Dan Britton about becoming part of the Thule Group and how this has helped the product's evolution. See page 38 for more.

From here on in we've our regular features, including electric bike and outdoor industry news, a dealer profile with Lancashire's The Fell, a guide to women's cycling accessories, a nutrition product spotlight and much more.
