The Bike Cooperative

Empowering bike shops to achieve greater profitability

Gain the Cooperative Edge

Just as the drivetrain connects a rider with the power to cover great distances on every bicycle, The Bike Cooperative® (TBC) forges a similar connection with bike retailers. Our strength lies in unifying local bike shops nationwide, providing solutions at scale to propel our industry forward. Together, we create the momentum needed to drive success for each and every member of The Bike Cooperative.

By becoming a member of The Bike Cooperative, you will join a community of like-minded bike retailers across the country and connect in our members-only online forum. Share insights, best practices, and strategies for success with fellow members who understand the unique challenges and opportunities in the cycling industry. While each member of The Bike Cooperative is unique, each faces comparable challenges. This shared ground is the very reason your cooperative exists — to empower independent bike dealers with a unified, national scale. This scale provides access to transformative tools, accompanied by full-service support to maximize their impact.

“So I’ve been using my regular Office Depot account all these years and accidentally discovered the Office Depot savings program while looking for another savings program on the TBC website. I submitted the form, they sent me a login, and boom: I’m saving 40-75% off things I’ve been paying regular price for ALL THESE YEARS.”

“The Freedom to Ride Financing Program through The Bike Cooperative is a great way to increase sales and gain satisfied return customers. Unlike the brand financing offered, customers get a card that is specific to our store, and the rates are lower. This program is simple to use for our busy staff and helps us obtain sales we would normally not get without the financing.”

Marketing plays a major role in driving sales and shaping a superior customer experience for local bike retailers. Our comprehensive marketing programs are meticulously designed to seamlessly integrate into your business strategy, enhancing both engagement and revenue. From automated purchase follow ups and loyalty programs to email blast and targeted direct mail campaigns, our members-only programs have your marketing needs covered.

“We were looking for a rewards program that worked with Ascend. We found The Bike Cooperative that saved thousands of dollars in AMEX merchant fees.”
