The Bike Share Boom – What It Means For Bike Retailers


“If you live in a major urban centre in most parts of the planet right now, you’ll likely be aware of the rapidly emerging presence of public share bicycles all over your sidewalks, around your train stations, and in your city squares.

And if you’re a bicycle retailer in one of those cities, you’re possibly a little anxious right now. Will it affect your business? Should you be worried? Or will it ultimately be a boost for bicycle retailers?”

Here’s my article on what exactly, is driving the bikeshare boom and why it should be embraced, rather than feared and despised by bicycle retailers.

And as usual, let me know your own views and feedback on this topic. Feel free to disagree or to ask more questions.
