Getting the right food into your body after a tough training session or long ride is almost as important as doing the training in the first place. We’ve talked about what to eat and drink on a long ride before, but what you have after is important because your body is working hard to cope […]

Over the first weeks of the Tour de France we gave our customers the chance to submit #TOURFEVER pictures on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The pictures were all about showing off how excited the #OddOnes were about the Tour – and we were most impressed by a snap from Martha Gill, taken on stage 3 […]

We think a holiday is for getting tired, not for getting chilled and that the best breaks involve wheels, pedals and handlebars, too. At Evans Cycles, we’re for the #OddOnes, and we’re giving away the ultimate long weekend – a three day stay with 44South, with flights, transfers and accommodation for two all covered. 44South […]
