MIAMI (BRAIN) — Bicycle Retailer & Industry News editors and sponsors roll out Tuesday morning on a three-day tour of bicycle stores in Miami for the first BRAIN Dealer Tour of 2014.
The BRAIN Dealer Tour will kick off with visits to two shops in Key Biscayne—Mangrove Cycles and Ultrabikex. Then the group will make its way back to Coral Gables, stopping in on No Boundaries Sport and Cycle World Miami. After an estimated 33 miles of riding, PeopleForBikes will host an end-of-day reception at J&B Importers’ Miami offices and warehouse.
On Wednesday, riders will visit five shops—Mack Cycle & Fitness, Swim Bike and Run, South Miami Bike Shop, All4Cycling and Revolution Bicycles Services—all while racking up only 12 miles.
On the final day, the BRAIN tour will head out to Miami Beach to visit Fritz’s Skate Bike & Surf and Miami Beach Bicycle Center and return to South Beach to tour Bike Tech and Tri Jungle, and logging an estimated 23 miles.
During hourlong visits editors will interview store owners and managers and post daily online recaps and photo galleries. In-depth coverage of the Miami retail landscape will be featured in a special section of the March 15 edition.
The BRAIN staff is joined by representatives from sponsoring companies Advanced Sports International, Interbike, Finish Line and PeopleForBikes.
