It's time once again to celebrate the independent bicycle dealers of the nation in our annual 'Top 20 IBDs' search.
Coinciding with the building of momentum behind the #supportlocalbikeshopssocial media message, BikeBiz will be celebrating the best examples of bike retailing in the independent bike shop sector.
We're looking for examples of shops offering service above and beyond the call of duty, supporting local cyclists or clubs, reaching out to non-cyclists or the local community or just providing an excellent shopping experience for consumers after bicycles and accessories.
We will consult with distributors and brands to get their take on the topic (all soundings will be made confidentially), but we're also throwing the net open to anyone who has, or knows of, a great independent bike shop that they think should be included. Email us here with your suggestions.
We’ll compile the list of top 20 IBDs in May's BikeBiz, and post it online during that month.
