We have joined with The Wheatley Arms in Ilkley to offer a range of options from small team building events to a mini-sportive. As a Business Development Manager you will be responsible for finding and developing new business while providing a first-class service. Your focus will be approaching cycle retailers, industry brands and professionals to increase awareness and build business. The feeling of freedom is what makes the bicycle my number one choice for both everyday transport and leisure. I can ride alone or with friends and we can go wherever we like, when we want.
There are more specialist e-bike dealers now concentrating on this sector of the market, whilst many standard bike shops are also starting to incorporate one of two e-bike brands into their everyday offering. Whilst we can give you guidance on the market and how best to go about setting up a bike business, the wisdom gained through experience carries immeasurable importance too. With that in mind CyclingIndustry.news has gathered together a pool of retailers managing a variety of bike retail businesses to hear their thoughts. The ACT can provide you with valuable advice and support through the entire life of your business. ACT is the leading cycle trade membership organisation, working with ActSmart to deliver essential services, business support, consumer promotion and development opportunities to the cycle trade. Each group of riders will be led by an experienced local ride leader.
In the 21st Century shop owners need a good business brain to match their enthusiasm for the product and lifestyle. The higher-end committed cycle market remains relatively strong, as indicated by consistent growth achieved via retail finance on average £1000 transactions. Retail finance sales in the cycles market now account for c.£70m per annum. ArmaUrto (ArmaUrto.com), an innovative provider of protective cycle wear, has secured a £150k equity investment from the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Investment Fund , as part of a larger £300k funding round.
But since working here I’ve found that cycling is more than just ‘riding a bike’; it’s mechanics, education and skills, health and wellbeing, community, inclusion, environmentalism, gender equality and more! I reckon you could pick any topic and find a link to cycling which is pretty cool. The sustainable enterprise will make use of Ethiopia’s bamboo resources to create bikes that will be manufactured locally and provide transport for rural communities in Ethiopia to promote and enhance mobility. The opportunity to be your own boss making a living from something you are passionate about is immeasurable. Becoming a positive part of your local community whilst working with exciting new products and providing expert advice and knowledge are some of the other rewards you can gain from your new business. Volumes in the mountain bike market have continued to decline, but are being compensated for by the increase in commuter and leisure cycling and the boom in e-bike sales.

Our team mechanic will also drive a support vehicle to accompany the riders, so it will feel a bit like riding in a team on the Tour de France! There will be regular stops and water and food will be available to sustain the riders on route. If anyone is really struggling with the ride, there is space for people and bikes in the support vehicle, so they can always hop onboard. A cycling event may well be the target to encourage your staff and clients to get that old bike out of the shed and hit the road. A few hours in the saddle doesn’t have to be difficult but it will be a challenge for some.
Senior Product Manager
I prefer the word cycle instead of bicycle, as it expands people’s thinking outside of a two-wheel experience. I believe that through the power of cycles, another, better world is possible. Product ownership of the chosen products throughout the full development lifecycle. An appreciation of the entire product development process, from problem solving through to detailed UI and visual design.
