ACT Shop of the Month

Posted on 4 Sep 2013

Each month the ACT recognises one cycle retailer as the Shop of the month.

The Shop of the month benefits from appearing on the home page of The Cycling Experts and the ACT websites, accessible by up to 600,000 web visitors a month.

The Cycling Experts benefits from traffic directly from British Cycling, Why Cycle, Bike Hub, Sustrans, Bike Week and Bikesoup, which all utilise or link directly to the Experts Business Listings. The combined traffic from all of these sites exceeds 4 million unique visitors a year.

To be considered as a future Shop of the Month, make sure your promotional listing is up to date. All cycle retailers have a basic entry with the option of creating their own extended, unique, promotional listing, click here to find out more.

ACT Shop of the Month | September | Whittlesey Cycles

Whittlesey Cycles are a family owned independent cycle shop near the cathedral city of Peterborough in Cambridgeshire who pride themselves on providing a quality service at an affordable price.

They are dealers for Giant, Raleigh, Claud Butler, Dahon, Mongoose, GT, Batribike and Powacycle - with a particularly good selection of electric bikes and folding bikes available.

As members of the Association of Cycle Traders and workshop staff Cytech trained and accredited, customers can be sure their bike is in good hands when it needs repair or servicing.

Their fully equipped workshop undertakes all types of servicing and repairs, many at fixed prices. Whittlesey Cycles have a reputation for repairing electric bikes that other shops can't and will undertake the repair of all brands of electric bikes.

Whittlesey Cycles has also become the most recent shop to introduce their own bespoke digital card scheme with The Experts Cards, so customers will be able to give the gift of cycling just in time for Christmas!
