Shorter days can sometimes mean less time for cycling – but this doesn’t have to be the case if you pick up a bike light capable of showing you the road even in the pitch black. Drivers don’t stop taking to the roads when the light fades – they just switch the headlights on, and […]

With daylight hours shifting ever so slightly, our thoughts are beginning to turn to lighting and safety –  keeping ourselves and our beloved bikes safe on the road, and being seen. The Blaze Laserlight was created by British designer Emily Brooke. The light uses a laser to display the image of a cyclist on the road, […]

Never fear, summer is still with us and we’re not going to start preaching waterproofs and full beam 1000 lumen light sets. However, the daylight hours are becoming a little more limited, and if you are riding later into the evening, a set of ‘be seen’ lights will certainly be a good addition to your […]

With summer on the way, warmer mornings and sunny evenings, cycling to work is a great way to cut down on ‘dead time’ spent on public transport or behind the wheel of a car. The government Cycle to Work scheme means that provided your employer is signed up to a scheme, you can probably pay […]

Head buyer at Evans Cycles, Joel Natale has spent the last 10 years riding in, out and around London.  He’s ridden over 10,000 miles in 2013 so far, many of them travelling in the UK but he’s also ridden rush hour in major US, European and Taiwanese cities.  In that time, he’s learnt a few […]
