Women’s cycling is a major priority for us at the moment, and we’re proud to announce the introduction of guided rides, aimed at encouraging female cyclists to take part in RideIt! events. Women’s cycling is growing incredibly quickly, aided by focused support from British Cycling, who aims to get 1 million more women cycling by […]

odd  (d) adj. odd·er, odd·est 1. Deviating from what is ordinary, usual, or expected.   At Evans Cycles, we don’t think the word ‘odd’ deserves the negative connotations it’s gathered over the years. In fact, it’s by definition a marker of the exceptional. We’re staffed by a team of #OddOnes (the name we give to dedicated cyclists who display characteristics which seem strange to the outside […]

After a winning sprint series, “One for the Girls” ladies shopping nights are back in Evans Cycles stores for a summer tour. The events began in Summer 2013, as a way to encourage and grow women’s cycling. They went down a storm and were in part responsible for us being voted ‘Best Chain Retailer of […]

Last week, we packed up our Evans Cycles vans with a fleet of HOY kids bikes, an inflatable test track, and lots of team members ready to embark upon the 2014 #HOYTour. We picked up Sir Chris Hoy along the way, and headed to London and Brighton on day one, Liverpool on day two and […]

From Brighton to Edinburgh in three days, the 2014 #HOYTour has been a whistlestop run of the country.

Here are the highlights from a wonderful final day […]

***We’ve all heard “rain couldn’t dampen the spirits…” a million times. Journalists have sought far and wide, looking for alternatives to this much overused introduction. In this case, we believe the statement is so true, so worthy- so much sums up the HOYTour so far, that we’re simply going to use it anyway. Here we […]

On the 9th August, one Evans Cycles Race Team member will be riding the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race in Colorado. He’s looking forward to it, and stepping up the training now his nerves are settled. Here’s an introduction to Staff Trainer Nick Coley’s challenge: First : meet Nick (it always helps to put a face […]

Last month, in-house bike designer James Olsen returned from 8 1/2 days of bikepacking across Israel. The 1360km Holyland Challenge took him from Golan Heights to Eliat on the Red Sea, taking in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem as well as the Sea of Galilee, the Dead Sea and the southern deserts.  Here’s his story…  After a race […]

Towards the end of last year, we set out with a very special mission: to find out what women want (from their bike shop). Cycling has a history of being a male dominated sport, but we know that more and more women are getting on their bikes, so we wanted to make sure that we’re […]

Last month we took it off-road with 8 lucky customers who all won the chance to test out the new range of Norco Mountain bikes, accompanied by expert MTB coaches in the Afan forest.
