With the longer days finally here and some sunshine to boot, thoughts start to turn towards the main season goals. This is more relevant if your speciality is multi-stage events, endurance or even 24 hour racing. A few brave Evans Cycles staff members, for instance, have recently embarked on one such super-challenge, Mountain Mayhem, the UK’s oldest […]

Have you ever wondered why male cyclists shave their legs, whether you are a MAMIL, what a derailleur is and why you might need chamois cream?

The race sets off from Roses on the Mediterranean coast on the 28th of June and finishes in Hondarribia on […]

  Hi All Wow, a sunny day in the saddle at last!! Hopefully it’ll last into the weekend…… IMPORTANT: Firstly I need to talk Horses. The local riders have been bombarded with events recently so are a bit fragile about events in the area.  There are quite a few horse stables in the area and […]

Why do male roadies – from TdF riders to Sunday morning café riders – reach for the razor? We strip back to the truth about fuzz-free legs.     1.  Because it makes you quicker…   Leg shaving offers the most marginal of gains* – but it’s a gain none the less and if you’ve […]

Last year a group of enterprising young Scottish cyclists started the CycleHack movement of bike-based innovation symposiums. And from that inaugural event they’ve had their first bona fide success: Penny in Yo’ Pants   Hacking, Pennies and Pants “A few friends and I started CycleHack last year,” Johanna Halton explains. “In Scotland there’s a lot […]
