In 2007, I started London Cyclist after getting frustrated at how the only articles I could find online were focused on high end cycling. I felt excluded from a tribe and that there wasn’t something out there for an everyday commuter like myself. It seems others shared my frustration and London Cyclist quickly grew in […]
Unwrapping the Velosock and holding it in your hands feels like you are holding on to a giants brightly coloured boxers. Getting it on the bike is a little fiddly, but not difficult. You’d probably be better off doing it outside your home, because the process is likely to displace some of the dirt you are looking […]
Guest post by Pete Reynolds from Discerning Cyclist Just because it’s getting a bit warmer in the summer months, there’s no reason to sacrifice on style when you’re out and about on your bike. There’s plenty of quality cycling clothes out there that combine both great cycling functionality and style. The kind of gear that […]

Andreas: This is a story from a London Cyclist reader. If you’d like to share your story, please use the contact page. I didn’t quite make it to work this morning.

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 […]
I don’t know if you know this about me, but I like cycling. Whilst 99% of the time I’m cycling from A to B on the streets of London, on a rare opportunity, I’ll go on a cycling trip. Recently, I’ve cycled in Germany, Bolivia and Devon. Next up, I’m hoping to ride the streets […]
The news this week that a female cyclist has died after being hit by a lorry in Denmark Hill has brought cycle safety into the spotlight once again. Over the past 24 hours, the two incidents have been the most viewed articles on the Evening Standard website. In 2015, six cyclists have been killed on […]
The pictures are in from the 2015 Mitie London Revolution. Here’s a selection of our favourites! Good advice at the start of the ride! Smart way to fuel up. I’d throw in a few energy gels too. The start of the ride is a chance to security mark your bike. You know, that thing you […]
Guest post by Catherine Ellis We always wanted Made in Britain to be stamped on our leather bike bags.

(We don’t want to go on […]
