The BikeBizBible database download is about to begin. Speak now or forever hold your peace. And check out the stats too, they've been massively updated and now include legislation requirements, cost of doing business information and tons of other useful stuff

Last chance to make changes

The B3 address directory database is now as clean and as fresh as possible. Or is it? Make sure we have all your details bang up to date before we go to print at the end of the week.

For instance, do we have your email address and website details?

And, what with Rhode Gear and Hydrapak being retired by Blackburn, it’s important that suppliers take one last look at our brand name finder and confirm we’ve got the most up to date compilation of brands.

If you haven’t dipped into the statistics section lately, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the new facts and figures that have been added recently. Again, it’s worth suppliers (and organisations) checking the facts within this section.

The print version of B3 will be out within the next 2-3 weeks, depending on when we can be fitted into the schedule for spiral binding.

Anybody wishing to place last minute ads in a directory that will go free to 2500 addresses should contact Al Reid on 0191 285 4408,, today or Wednesday. The last day for artwork submissions is Thursday and then – yippee! – we go to print.
