The year that was is drawing to a close, and we’re starting to turn our heads and hearts to 2014, with January training camps and tons of offers on bikes to ensure you have a fantastic 12 months of riding ahead. However, we wanted to take some time to look at some of the things […]

The more we know about the people who shop with us, the better we can cater for them. Recently, we carried out a survey to gather some information from our shoppers about what they want from a bike, what they’re prepared to spend, and what’s most important to them. It looks like quality comes out tops, and […]

We lent out some bikes to a few guys around the company over the summer for a long termer review. From road to mountain, recreation to race, our ride squad put the bikes through their paces and after a few months have got off the saddle to write up their experiences. Simon Alexander is a […]

I’ve been using the CycleOps Powertap wheels for about 2 weeks now – it’s shot by and I’ve been busily downloading the data from every ride and busily analysing it at every opportunity.

Evans Cycles continues to offer fantastic Ride2Work packages which help employees ride to work for less. Commuting to work by bike is not only a healthy option; it can save you money on travel costs and is great fun! Recent new HMRC legislation confirmed that the treatment of VAT in relation to Tax free bike schemes is changing. This will come into effect from January […]
