Each of the retailers in the Top 50 will receive a special certificate of achievement together with an exclusive logo for use in their own marketing materials plus consumer promotion via the ACT’s popular Cycling Experts website.

The Top 50 will be regularly updated to reflect the achievement and qualification of stores and their staff in the Cytech scheme and therefore all participants are urged to check their details on the Cytech Retail Directory website:

The next step in the Cytech programme is the formal accreditation and recognition of over 500 cycle retailers holding a Cytech Technical Two qualification or above. This project will commence in January and retailers wishing to learn more should contact ACT direct.
