It is not often here at Evans Cycles we throw the spotlight on our colleagues, but recently we were joined by a new face at the helm, Nick Wilkinson, who is the new CEO of the company. So we thought it might be a good idea to ask Nick a few questions and see where […]

Hello. Spent the day putting out the long loop of this weekends Sportive ride. It’s very fast and not too hilly ( totally the opposite of last weekends Peaks ride!!) and great cycling weather.

The Dolomite (and Women’s Gabbro) road models are probably my favourite bikes in the new, revamped Pinnacle range; stylish, comfortable, stable, lightweight, shrewdly specced and great value, they promise to help many entry-level fitness/sport riders make that transition to their first ‘proper’ drop-bar road bike.
