Cycle industry manual the BikeBiz Bible is set to return for the first time in five years.
The indispensable guide will be sent to all BikeBiz subscribers with the June edition of the magazine, free of charge.
The long-awaited reappearance of the essential directory has come as a result of unrelenting demand from the trade, with copies of the 2005 edition still being requested by cycle retailers.
The new print edition will include an A to Z listing of all of the bicycle companies in the trade, including distributors, manufacturers, retailers and cycle-relevant organisations.
The BikeBiz Bible is an established bike shop staple and sponsors will also feature in an additional dedicated brand index, which will provide retailers with an essential resource enabling them to identify which distributors supply which brand, at a glance.
Intent Media MD Stuart Dinsey said of the return: “Following another great year for BikeBiz, where we saw the magazine and website go from strength-to-strength and the first live BikeBiz Awards in October, the time is right to bring back the BikeBiz Bible.
“It is testament to how well regarded the Bible is that we still receive requests for it. We’ve listened to the cycle industry and now we’re bringing it back in 2010.”
Companies in the cycle industry are being encouraged to send their business details to BikeBizBible@intentmedia.co.uk to ensure their information is listed in the BikeBiz Bible.
Key company details should include the name of the business, address, telephone number, web address and nature of business.
