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 […]
