On Friday afternoon, our good friends at @WiggleBikeShop nominated us to complete the #IceBucketChallenge…   Now, at Evans Cycles we never like to turn down a challenge – so we stepped up. We’ve donated to the Motor Neurone Disease Association  - all for the pleasure of having buckets of cold water chucked over our heads. Motor Neurone Disease […]

We’ve done  ’36 things cyclists say’ – and we know members of the cycling community, otherwise called the ‘OddOnes’,  have plenty of funny little quirks which we love to celebrate. Of course, sometimes we have to interact with humanoids from outside the #OddOnes community. And they do say the funniest things. Here are some of […]

  The major questions in life: what is the meaning of it? What happens after? And… what effect does hair have on aerodynamics..? We can’t answer the first two without causing a bit of controversy (in our humble opinion: cycling, and cycling..) – but Specialized have helped us out a lot with the final burning […]

We know – we’re Evans Cycles – so we are probably biased. Still, the #OddOnes will all back us up on this – cycling is a fantastic way to get outside, stay fit, save money – and most of all, have fun. Here are our 8 top reasons cycling rules… would you add any? 1) […]

There are a few hardcore riders who slog it out 12 months a year, but for many people, the biggest gains in fitness are to be made over summer – when the sun is shining and the rain is mainly staying away. Getting fitter definitely means feeling better, inside and out – and you’ll notice […]

Tomorrow, the Tour de France begins in Britain – and we are EXCITED. So excited, that we’re not sure we will be able to concentrate for the next 3 weeks.  If you feel the same, we’ve prepared a note for your boss, which clearly explains the situation – it’s severity, and the cure. Here it […]

With the biggest bike race in the WORLD (like, ever) set to launch with a bang in Yorkshire on Saturday, the local residents have been impressively busy creating advice videos and friendly jingles to welcome the peloton to God’s own country. We’re pretty impressed with their antics, which show that the #OddOnes spirit is well […]

The #OddOnes know there is no such thing as too many bikes. There are so many different ways of enjoying cycling, it seems a shame to miss out because you’ve not got a bike for the discipline. N+1 is the Velominati equation for the perfect number of bikes to have – where ‘N’ is the […]

The Tour de France Grand Depart is getting tantalisingly close. Submissions we’ve had to our #TOURFEVER competition (still time to enter!) have shown us that the #OddOnes out there have well and truly ‘caught it’- we know you’re all joining us sitting on the end of our saddles in anticipation. To help get you ready for […]

Summer time means plenty of extra sunlight hours – and quite obviously they need to be primarily dedicated to the single joy of bike riding. Riding is awesome fun on its own – but we cyclists (currently known as the #OddOnes) are always looking for a new little gadget to help us enjoy the ride even […]
