We’ve all felt the first kiss of the spring this weekend – it was magnificent, riding in shorts for the first time this year was great. Often the first warm ride of the season reveals shortcomings in fitness and sometimes in gear. We have teamed up with a couple of great brands to give you […]

A recent trip to the Alps to race the Megavalanche meant a serious think about protection. I’ve always used a spine protector and knee / elbow pads when on my DH bike but after talking to a few colleagues I realised this probably wouldn’t cut it at the Mega. And all I can say is: […]

Well here we are at 3,000m on the top of Pic Blanc, Alpe D’Huez. It’s 7am on a Sunday morning, 2 degrees and pretty blooming cold stuck in a long lift queue to get up the top of the mountain. But still, it’s pretty special. After my dismal qualifying run, I was pleased to be […]

This month’s customer review was written by Michael Whitelegge on the Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc 2011, and as usual, he is entitled to the £250 voucher.

Guest blogger Phoebe Doyle reviewed the Adventure ST3 Two Seater 2009 Trailer bike for us. Phoebe Doyle blogs about parenting and education at www.tremendouslytwo.blogspot.com OK, I’ll level with you; I’m not exactly the most confident of cyclists and so hadn’t given the idea of a trailer much thought. Friends of ours though had found them […]

Our notorious King of the Downs super sportive is back as part of the RideIt! series. Harder and longer than the usual sportive ride, the King of the Downs will test your strength and endurance to the max! Entries are now open and as ever the event is filling up fast so get in quick […]

Cole Wheels are a new brand for Evans Cycles, and Bert has already given us a good overview in his recent post. So the first thing we decided to do when all the samples arrrived is test them! Now, I’m your typical guy who has just got into road riding from MTB – bought a […]
