Specialist cycle insurer gets behind this year's hunt

Cycleguard joins the search for the UK’s top IBDs

Our search for the nation’s top independent bicycle dealers is being backed by specialist cycle insurer Cycleguard.

Cycleguard has been providing cycle insurance cover for over 15 years, working not only with individual cyclists but also with IBDs.

Every year BikeBiz runs the ‘top 20 IBDs’ competition to celebrate the independent bike shop sector and its top performers, consulting with distributors, brands and readers on who has impressed over the year.

Adrian Scott, Head of Cycleguard, said: “For over 15 years we’ve worked hand in hand with hundreds of Independent Bike Dealers, through our Cycleguard Partnership scheme and as a result we understand the challenges they face.

"We therefore are extremely pleased to team up with BikeBiz in the search for the Top 20 IBDs, to commend the great service they provide for their customers.”

To find out more about Cycleguard’s Insurance Partnership Scheme, email cycleguardsupport@thistleonline.co.uk. Dealers can also visit www.cycleguard.co.uk to receive an instant quote for your cycle insurance cover.

Nominations for 2015’s top 20 IBDs are now closed. The retailers that have made the list will be revealed in the April edition of BikeBiz, arriving at the end of next week. The results will appear online shortly afterwards. Thanks to everyone who had an input into the list.
