Half way there, I was knocked off my bike yards from where a fatal cycling accident took place last month. After the shock, I didn’t […]

For a glimpse of a car-free London, take a trip down to Regent’s Streets on any Sunday in July.

Note from Andreas: I’m in New York this week and it just so happened at the same time London Cyclist was invited to race Bradley Wiggins during his record breaking challenge. Unable to go, my friends Peter Newell and Ben Holt took on the challenge. On Sunday, Sir Bradley Wiggins smashed the record for most distance travelled […]
John Hamlen spent 5 months walking along London’s Cycle Superhighways to find the perfect location for his cycle cafe. One day, peering through the window of what was then another cafe, Eat Play Love, he knew he’d found the perfect spot. As fortunes would have it, a few days after the discovery, Eat Play Love closed down. John started toiling away on […]

Guest post by Catherine Ellis We always wanted Made in Britain to be stamped on our leather bike bags. Yeah, the Italians know a bit about cycling, and leather for that matter, but us Brits are hard at their heels both in terms of innovative bike products and cycling itself. (We don’t want to go on […]
Rechargeable lights come with green credentials and are wallet friendly, saving you from having to keep replacing the batteries.

Since the rides conception just a few short years ago, it’s become one of the most popular routes amongst London cyclists, selling out each year. The 2015 edition, kicks […]
It’s a well known formula: Bike + Indoor storage = Unhappy coinhabitants + messy corridor Having recently taken part in the much despised game of “find a new place to rent” one of the things I was looking at, as estate agents showed me around, was where I could potentially store my bike.

In a previous video, I’ve talked about 5 of the greatest dangers facing cyclists in London. Of course it’s not just about avoiding the dangers, it’s also about taking in the joys of cycling in London. In the new video, I wanted to explore 10 of the greatest joys London cyclists experience.
