The Road to Becoming the Best
On June 30th, 2015, the ATA Cycle team was selected as a final nominee in the Interbike Best Pro Road Shop category. This honor was of immense importance because, for the first time in 20 years of business, ATA Cycle was being recognized for the high caliber work we have been producing with respect to world class bicycle fit labs and the ultimate diversity of European road bike manufacturers.

The Voting Process Begins!
What sets us apart from all other shops is the fact that once clients come in for products and services we form business relationships here that last a lifetime. Whether we are building up a bike for a client who lives in Concord, MA or scheduling a fitting appointment with a client from Beijing, China…we remain in touch. This is what gave us such amazing support when the voting was open.
Las Vegas OR Bust!
On September 16th, we packed up our things and headed to Las Vegas, NV for Interbike. After a long trip, we spent the day conversing with hundreds of other industry professionals. We then eagerly awaited the awards ceremony. On the night of September 17th, the awards ceremony finally took place. We watched as many deserving people were given awards for their work this year. The crowd for the event seemed endless and we suddenly felt like we were attending the Oscar’s. During this rush of excitement, we were presented with the prestigious award of Best Pro Road Shop 2015!
Getting this amazing award has been an incredibly humbling experience. Not only have we worked hard for this respect from our customers, but we’ve worked hard for the responsibility that comes with this title. We want our customers to know that this is the level of service we hold ourselves to everyday.
A very special thank you to all who voted for us!!! You all truly helped make this amazing dream a reality.
