The Founder

London Cyclist was founded by Andreas. He lives in Tower Bridge Camden St Johns Wood Kentish Town. His two passions are cycling and blogging – which if the two combined together and had a baby it would be a website. Hence, London Cyclist. He has been cycling since he can remember, enjoys taking part in many cycling events in London and he cannot image life without his bike. He often wonders why people write this page in third person?

Emily too

The Lead Editor

Our lead editor, who is in charge of most the day to day running is Emily. Emily joined London Cyclist from Brompton in 2015 and immediately overloaded her lounge with all the latest cycling gear ready to review for London Cyclist. You’ll find Emily at most cycling meetups in London and if you do make sure you say hello.

Affiliate links

The blog uses affiliate links that mainly link to Wiggle online store and Amazon. I tend to try and link to the place where I found the best price. If a user clicks on the link and purchases something then I make a small percentage of the sale. This money helps to maintain the blog and helps to give me more time to write new content. The main affiliate program I use is Affiliate Window.

The trust of readers of London Cyclist Blog is my main concern and therefore I will only ever recommend products I personally use (or one of my writers uses).
