What inspires bike retailers to attend the National Bike Summit?
For Steve Kahn of Danny’s Cycles in Scarsdale, NY, it’s “to help secure a future of cycling for my kids.” For other shop staff, it’s to boost their bottom line and grow their customer base by sharing the benefits of bike investment with members of Congress.
No matter what your reason for attending the Summit, the National Bicycle Dealers Association (NBDA) is working hard to get you there.
For 25 shop owners and managers, the NBDA is providing scholarships to cover the cost of registration and travel (up to $625). To be eligible to apply, you must be a first-time Summit attendee and your shop must be a member of NBDA. If you or someone you know would like to be considered, make sure to get in your application fast! The deadline is 5:00 EST this Thursday, January 10th.
“I love this event, ” says Jannine Fitzgerald, co-owner of Fitzgerald’s Bicycles in Victor, ID. We’ll sure you will too!
