The League of American Bicyclists Announces 2008 Shops of the Year

Washington, D.C.

The League of American Bicyclists is proud to announce the 2008 Shops of the Year, as determined by our members.

The League's Shops of the Year award recognizes outstanding shops for their commitment to customer service and dedication to encouraging cycling. Andy Clarke, President of the League, said, "The League is delighted to recognize all of the 2008 Shops of the Year for their efforts to promote cycling in their communities. In addition to their outstanding customer service, these shops are involved in advocacy, education and encouragement activities that have an impact well beyond their shops' walls."

2008 Shops of the Year:

Region 1. Belmont Wheelworks. Belmont, Massachusetts

Region 2. Genesis Bicycles. Easton, Pennsylvania

Region 3. Revolution Cycles. Arlington, Virginia

Region 4. American Cycle & Fitness. Commerce Twp., Michigan
Century Cycles. Peninsula, Ohio
HubBub Custom Bicycles. Cleveland, Ohio

Region 5. Bicycle Sport Shop. Austin, Texas

Region 6. Bike Gallery. Portland, Oregon

The League determined the 2008 Shops of the Year winners in a recent membership survey. The League's members were asked what their favorite bike shops were and why. The shops with the most mentions in each region won. Typically, six awards are given - one per region. However, 2008 proved to be a great year for bicycling and for Region 4 where three shops were recognized due to a three-way tie.
