National Cycle to Work day took place this week and many first-time-in-a-long-time riders were dusting off their shed dwellers and wheeling them out for a rare ride.  Cycling to work is a great way to get fit, save money, protect the environment and wake yourself up in the morning – and it’s great every day of the […]

Allez! Allez! – we sing to riders as they labour major climbs. In English, the sentiment is similar to ‘Let’s go! Come on!’ – and when applied to the Specialized Allez road bike range, it’s not unchanged – these bikes are about get up and go. The Allez road bike range has been a key […]

Not the most expensive range within the Specialized offerings, it’s a performance bike that will suit a beginner, but will still provide a light weight, […]

Shorter days can sometimes mean less time for cycling – but this doesn’t have to be the case if you pick up a bike light capable of showing you the road even in the pitch black. Drivers don’t stop taking to the roads when the light fades – they just switch the headlights on, and […]
