Pedal Chic is the recipient of 2012 BRAINy award for "Best Women's Bicycle Retailer" in the Nation.

Greenville, SC (I-Newswire) September 20, 2012 - Pedal Chic and its founder, Robin Bylenga, received a prestigious honor last night at the annual Interbike Conference. Pedal Chic received the BRAINy award for being The "Best Bike Shop for Women" in the nation.

The BRAINy awards, sponsored by Bicycle Retailer and Industry News, recognized Bylenga's efforts and achievements in creating a vibrant and nurturing business that supports and inspires women to enjoy the benefits of cycling and fitness.

"Winning a 2012 BRAINy award is an honor and an inspiration for Pedal Chic," said Robin Bylenga, founder of Pedal Chic. "The market for women's cycling holds unlimited potential. It was a niche we were passionate about, that we studied carefully, and that we were determined to fill. What started as a dream to inspire women to get active and rediscover the joy of fitness through cycling has grown into a movement. We're proud to be on the forefront of empowering women by combining fitness and fashion along with re-discovering the unique freedom of riding a bike."
