Announcement: CyclingTips and PinkBike join forces
Dear CyclingTips readers,
I’m excited to announce that CyclingTips has been acquired by Pinkbike, effective immediately.
Our new partnership with Pinkbike will allow us to leverage the resources, expertise, and model for success that they’ve found over the past 20 years in the media industry. We’re both trying to accomplish the same thing, we understand each other’s businesses, and it will allow us to integrate as one powerful team.
I won’t be going anywhere and will continue to run CyclingTips with the same dedication I always have, along with the rest of our valued employees. This was the best outcome I could imagine for the business, our readers, our members, and our industry partners.
I’d like to thank BikeExchange for the significant investment and support they made into CyclingTips over the past three years which enabled us to build one of the best teams in cycling media and become a well respected global brand. Without the investment, trust and autonomy that BikeExchange has given us, we probably wouldn’t be here right now.
I appreciated that many of you expressed great concern about what would become of CyclingTips after BikeExchange’s acquisition of the business. We proved that we would stick to our morals and there’s no doubt in my mind that we offer a much better service than we did three years ago and have a greater impact on the road cycling world. I hope you will continue to stand by us and continue on this journey.
I would also like to thank Pinkbike for being a pleasure to deal with through this process, their commitment to seeing this through, and their enthusiasm for our shared future together. Their goal is to help make CT a glowing success, just as they’ve done with PinkBike and TrailForks.
I think of this as a new beginning and I’m excited at the prospects ahead.
Thank you for your continued support.
