The NBDA is a non-profit association promoting the interests of every specialty bicycle retailer in the United States. Each dollar raised goes towards funding member programs, and every program is approved by an active, elected volunteer board of directors comprised of specialty bicycle retailers.  The NBDA mission is to “strengthen the specialty bicycle retailer,” and its vision is “leading bicycle retail to excellence.”  To support these efforts, the NBDA publishes Bicycle Retailer And Industry News, the industry’s leading journal for the bicycle trade, the NBDA Outspokin’ Newsletter, produces NBDA Super Seminars, and offers many programs and initiatives to assist bicycle dealers to become excellent in their businesses.  For more information about the NBDA, visit http://www.nbda.com.
