We've brokered a dataset of all 2,500-ish bike shops in the UK from the 
Association of Cycle Traders (many thanks to them!), for the purposes of 
merging this dataset into the OpenStreetMap database. It has postcode-level 
accuracy only but that's a massive head-start.

Andy Allan and Shaun McDonald have created a webapp for the specific 
purpose of merging (manually) this data into OSM.

Effectively it has a map of locations not yet reconciled, i.e. a checklist. 
Click on each location, and you'll then have a direct link to the relevant 
bit of OSM where the shop can be added/updated/removed using personal 
knowledge. Once that's done, it can be ticked off back in the webapp.
