Shimano has announced it will be renewing and expanding its partnership with the Union Cycliste Internationale – one that has been in operation since 1999.

The two will "aim to strengthen their collaboration and work together to promote the values that bind them and the causes closest to their hearts: the development of cycling in all its forms (as a competitive sport, a recreational activity, and a means of transport) for everyone; the promotion of diversity among people who cycle; and the promotion of healthy living through cycling."
