Johnny Velo Bikes Receives America's Best Bike Shop Award

The Clintonville bike shop has been open less than two years but continues to make a name for itself in providing great bikes and service to the Columbus Ohio community.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 12, 2019



Columbus, Ohio – Johnny Velo Bikes has received an America’s Best Bike Shop award from the National Bike Dealers Association (NBDA). The shop is among only six in Ohio to earn the distinction, which is based on an application and secret shopper process. 


Owner, John Robinson, says, “It's an honor to be recognized as one of the best bike shops out of more 4,000 shops in the country. We've only been in business for two years, but we've worked very hard to create a professional and friendly atmosphere for our customers.”


The NBDA's America's Best Bike Shops program identifies and rewards bicycle stores in North America against the highest performance standards in the industry. Shops are scored on shop layout and design, staff and management, training, marketing, and community involvement. Only the highest performing shops receive an America’s Best Bike Shop distinction.


“The ABBS program is as much about the application process as it is the award,” says Brandee Lepak, NBDA president. “The highest-scoring shops earn the America’s Best designation, but everyone who applies gains insight and learns ways to improve their business.”


Applicants must be independent bicycle stores with a physical store open to the public that sells bicycles, parts, accessories, and has a service department. At least half of a store's total sales must be related to bicycles and be from a physical store location.
