Century Cycles Named Among Nation's Best

Peninsula, OH – Century Cycles in Rocky River is among the Top 100 Best Bicycle Retailers in the nation, concluded a survey done by Bicycle Retailer & Industry News, the industry’s leading trade magazine.

Marc Sani, the magazine’s publisher, said a balanced panel of leading industry manufacturers selected Century Cycles. Bicycle retailers from across the country were rated on such factors as market share, community outreach, and store appearance, he explained.

“There are about 5,200 bicycle retailers in the United States and for Century Cycles to be one of the Top 100 bicycle stores in the nation is no small matter. This store stands as one of the best of the best,” Sani said.

“We are honored by this recognition and it’s a credit to our employees,” said Scott Cowan, owner of Century Cycles. “We believe that our employees work with us, not for us. This sets the stage for a fun working environment and a rewarding shopping experience for our customers.”

This is the third time Century Cycles has been named one the Top 100 Bicycle Retailers in the nation. In addition, Century Cycles is one of the top 25 Raleigh bicycle retailers in the nation, a distinction among nearly 2,000 U.S. Raleigh dealers that Century Cycles has held for seven years in a row.

“Today’s bicycles and accessories offer remarkable quality and high value,” Sani said. “So when consumers walk into a store like this one, they are getting the best customer service and best products available.”

Century Cycles is an authorized dealer for Giant, Raleigh, Bianchi, Burley, Santana, and Electra bicycles, as well as the most popular brands of clothing, parts, and accessories, including Pearl Izumi, Bellweather, Canari, Shimano, Campagnolo, Bell Helmets, and more. All three stores offer full bicycle service and the Peninsula location also offers bicycle rentals along the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail.

Century Cycles is an award-winning chain of independent bicycle stores with locations in Rocky River, Medina, and Peninsula. In addition to catering to cyclists and their families with high-quality bicycles and exemplary service, Century Cycles is active locally and nationally in support of bicycling paths and other issues of vital importance to the cycling community.
