In the last few weeks we’ve added several new dealers to our list. Recently Adventure Cyclist www.adventurecycling.org added us to their online store and the CELLO will be available in their spring catalog. Also Pedal the Planet www.pedaltheplanet.com , a bike-touring specific online-retailer added us to their excelent mix of bicycle touring products. We are very interested in the growing niche of bike touring specific websites and retailers. Our online retailer in the Netherlands, Bike4Travel www.Bike4Travel.nl , had the grand opening of their first retail location yesterday in Rotterdam. Their entire store is dedicated to bicycle touring, with a full selection of touring bicycles, touring accesories, bike maps, and camping equipment.
The growth of the bike touring niche is progressing in multiple directions, from online and brick and mortar retail to a wide variety of bike touring companies to manufactures focusing of touring specific products. The rapid growth of Adventure Cyclist members in the US to 42,000 shows a growing interest in touring and traveling with bicycles.
