TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2024

The annual TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards stands for the bicycle industry's significant growth and abundant creativity. From the beginning, it was supported and promoted by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and the Taiwan Bicycle Association (TBA). The bicycle industry stands as a crucial pillar of Taiwan's economy, underscored by its unwavering dedication to technological innovation, research, and development for many years.

Last year, the TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards introduced the Gold Award - Green Prize for the first time, encouraging industry participants to showcase their achievements in sustainable development. This endeavor successfully attracted many products adhering to the 3R green design standards. In keeping with the ongoing trend of the TAIPEI CYCLE, our objective for this year is to continue exploring sustainable practices and solutions.
