  • Any cycle business can participate in the ACT UK cycling community free of charge
  • All membership prices reduced in partnership with ActSmart and IRC, ACT membership now only £60 p.a.
  • Extending business support and the range of services available to members
  • Increased focus on retail turnover and consumer engagement
  • Dedicated investment in people - recruitment, skills and retention, especially technicians
  • At this critical time, an ever more influential retail business advocacy role with Government in partnership with the IRC
  • Continued focus on UK cycling development in partnership with IBDs and cycling advocacy organisations
