RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Ridgefield Bicycle Company has been named one of America’s Best Bike Shops for the second straight year.
The award was announced by the National Bicycle Dealers Association. Ridgefield Bicycle was only one of five bicycle stores in the state to earn the accolade. The only other Fairfield County bicycle store to earn the distinction was Bicycle Center in Brookfield.
The NBDA's America's Best Bike Shops program is designed to identify and reward bicycle stores in North America against the highest performance standards in the industry.
To be considered, a store representative must apply by filling out a detailed application, as well as agreeing to be mystery shopped by an outside company. Applicants are awarded points based on the application and shopping results, with only the highest performers being selected.
Applicants must be independent bicycle stores with a physical store open to the public that sells bicycles, parts, accessories, and has a service department.
Jacqui and Sean Dowd opened the store in 2011 at 88 Danbury Road in Ridgefield. Click here to visit the store’s website .
