2020 was an incredible year for everyday cycling. At the ACT, we're working hard to ensure that momentum continues. We're proud to announce that we're founding members of the #BikeIsBest campaign as a supporter.

Established by Fusion Media, the #BikeIsBest campaign is fuelling the bike boom by breaking down the barriers that prevent people from cycling like infrastructure, representation and access to bikes.

Bike shops have a crucial role to play in supporting new and returning cyclists, so the ACT is getting together with other industry leaders within the Cycling Marketing Board, as a #BikeIsBest partner, involved in two large scale media campaigns and research studies across 2021 designed to drive long term cycling growth.

 

Have you received your #BikeIsBest x ACT promo pack?

ACT members were recently sent out a #BikeIsBest promo pack in the mail, which included a window sticker, a poster and an introductory letter.

We'd love to see your support for the campaign; send in your shop photos featuring the #BikeIsBest window sticker and/or poster to be posted on the ACT social media channels! Email your photos into info@theact.org.uk.

Bike shops can also get involved by signing up to support the #BikeIsBest campaign at cycleassociation.uk/bikeisbest.

Once you've signed up your shop will be displayed on The Cycling Experts website as a #BikeIsBest supporter.

You can also show your support for the #BikeIsBest campaigns in-store, on your website and on social channels.
