The Bible, in association with Silverfish, is the only directory of the UK bicycle trade, including listings for all companies, services and charities associated with the trade, all wrapped up alongside columns from industry figureheads, an events schedule and more.

Silverfish managing director Darren Mabbott said: “Silverfish is very happy to continue its support of the re-launched BikeBiz Bible for a second year. In this age of apps and tweets, it is deeply satisfying to thumb through a well-used copy of the BikeBiz Bible – we feel that the Bible is a key tool for our customers.

“With the depth of information that it contains, and the fact it can be easily stored next to the phone or till, it’s a valuable resource for the IBD network. We just need to work out how we’re going to trump last year’s one-off illustrated cover – we’re open to suggestions!"

BikeBiz’s managing editor Lisa Carter added: "After a five-year absence, the BikeBiz Bible returned last year, to much applause from the industry. This year’s updated Bible will be bigger and better. But make sure you contact us now to update your listing.”
