It is hard to believe we are already nearing the end of 2018. It seems like only yesterday, we were kicking off our season, and now we’re weeks away from our final race for 2018.
As we plan for our Thanksgiving festivities later today, I wanted to sit down and put a post together to take a look back at our 15th season as a company and express our thankfulness.
2018 was another banner year for TBT. Wee transported almost 10,000 bikes to more than 60 triathlon and cycling events in half a dozen countries on 4 continents. We also continued to build our presence in the sport by growing our strong partnerships as the official bike transport sponsor with a number of major triathlon based organizations, including IRONMAN® North America, USA Triathlon, Team in Training, and Life Time Fitness. This year also saw TBT develop a stronger presence in Mexico and Europe, as well as non-triathlon events - stay tuned for even more activity on these fronts in 2019!
I am truly thankful for our amazing staff. Our success would not be possible without their hard work. This year, more than any other, they have gone above and beyond. From everyone on our management team, to our customer service team, to our team of drivers, each team member has made providing better service to our customers their priority. I am constantly hearing from our customers at events, on the phone, or via email, that our staff has taken one of the more stressful aspects of traveling to a race away, and significantly improved the race experience. We are extremely proud of our team.
But most of all, I am thankful for each of you, our customers. None of what we have done this year as a company would have been possible without you. Each time you sign up for our transport service you put your trust in the Tribike Transport team to transport your “baby”. Whether your bike is traveling across the country, or across the ocean, we value your trust and do not take this responsibility lightly.
As we finalize our planning for 2019, we have some even bigger things in store that I know you are going to love. We are looking at expanding our services from North America to Europe, adding even more non-triathlon races to our schedule, servicing more events from more partner shops, and even have a few other surprises planned. Stay tuned to our website and social media channels for all of the latest updates.
So, sit back today, enjoy some turkey, some football, and some time with your family, I know I will be….and don’t forget to head over to www.tribiketransport.com to plan out your 2019 race schedule. We already have 50 races posted for next year and are adding more all the time.
