Century Cycles named one of nation's best bike retailers

ROCKY RIVER, Ohio (February 23, 2011) – Century Cycles is among the 100 best bicycle retailers in the nation, concluded an award presented by Bicycle Retailer and Industry News, the bicycle industry’s leading trade publication. Century Cycles is a local bike store chain with locations in Rocky River, Medina, and Peninsula.

A panel of leading industry representatives selected Century Cycles for the Top 100 Bicycle Retailer award among over 5,000 bicycle retailers in the United States, rating the stores on such factors as community outreach, market share, advocacy efforts and overall professionalism. The local bike store chain was also honored as a 2010 5 Star Retailer for winning the award for five straight years, recognized for outstanding effort and achievement from 2006 through 2010.

“The retailers that have been named Top 100 and 5 Star retailers have distinguished themselves as the best of the best,” said Megan Tompkins, editor of Bicycle Retailer and Industry News.

“We are grateful for this recognition and believe it’s a credit to our experienced and passionate employees,” said Scott Cowan, owner of Century Cycles. Cowan also cites the store’s successful Bike To School Challenge program, which will return in May for a fourth year at Bay Village high and middle schools and for the first time at Rocky River Middle School.
