The Moab business is one of 170 bike shops nationwide to be given the honor in the first year of the America’s Best Bike Shops program. There are approximately 4,000 bike shops in the U.S., according to the National Bicycle Dealers Association.
To compete for the award, the shops completed an application describing what set them apart from the average store. Mystery shoppers then evaluated the business by visiting the store, reviewing the store’s website and contacting the shop by phone to assess the performance from a consumer’s perspective.
The new program is designed to help consumers find stores in their areas that will “provide the expertise and professionalism they need to get the most benefit from cycling,” according to a news release.
