We may only be halfway through the year, but already here at Mountain Bikes Direct we've had a few wins and we're all feeling a bit chuffed!
First we found out we're finalists in the StarTrack ORIAS, a national award which recognises top online retailers.
Then we heard we're a state finalist in the Telstra Business Awards! The Telstra Awards are one of the most significant and well-regarded in Australia (currently in their 25th year).
It's honestly so exciting when we get a nod from the likes of the ORIAS or Telstra Business Awards. It's been less than five years since we launched Mountain Bikes Direct into the world, and in that time we've changed a few things, we've refined what we do, worked on our site, range and strategy - and it's not been without it's challenges! We are still working every day to improve and make it the best business we can. We are relentlessly focused on getting the best mountain bike parts and accessories into the hands of Aussie riders, and so we don't always get a chance to stop and look back over what we've achieved.... thousands + thousands of happy customers who have been able to get their premium MTB gear at globally competitive prices, from a local company that is passionate about mountain biking!
We plan on continuing to deliver awesome things to the mountain bike community, and we couldn't do it without you all. Thanks to everyone who continues to support us!
