A place in the listing costs £10 per month. The trial listing will include details of 100 ACT members and will include icons denoting dealers with CyTech accredited staff and those offering the Booost and Fetch schemes.
According to Future Publishing, the average WMB reader spends £1350 on a new bike and £343 on cycle related accessories.
ACT’s Mark Brown said: “Research amongst our members has shown that consumer promotion and endorsement are key benefits of membership, and therefore we want to develop this area further. What Mountain Bike is a quality publication. I believe the listing offers readers both a useful reference resource and additional peace of mind.”
If the trial is successful it will be rolled out in the other Future titles, Cycling Plus, Mountain Biking UK and Pro Cycling.
Future Publishing will soon contact ACT members. Alternatively, IBDs wishing to confirm their place as one of the 100 can register interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
