About Bikes.org.uk, Cycling & Mark Taylor
Bikes.org.uk is a cycling blog with helpful advice on how to become a better cyclist, including fitness & nutrition tips, information on cycling sportives and product reviews.
The Bikes.org.uk website has gone through several incarnations but is now a dedicated cycling blog, written from a personal perspective by Mark Taylor. The blog is a collection of my personal journey as a cyclist and I share things as I discover them.
Like many cyclists, I’ve been riding bikes since I was very young and despite now being just a little older, I love it just as much. I’ve done my time on touring bikes, have cycled throughout the UK, including Lands End to John O’ Groats (yes, uphill!) and now have fun on a mountain bike in the hills of North Wales, do regular charity bike rides and quite a number of Sportives across Wirral, Merseyside & Cheshire on my road bike.
One of the most popular features on Bikes.org.uk is the Cycling iCal Calendar for UCI World Tour dates. This calendar allows you to add all of the Mens & Womens UCI World Tour events to your personal calendar in less than a minute! The iCal includes the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, Vuelta a Espana and every other elite UCI event.
The Cycling Guides section has a wealth of content on a wide range of cycling topics, such as help on which bike is right for you, what to wear when your cycling and then a whole host of guides on cycling tools, finance, cycle insurance, food & drink, training & fitness and plenty more too.
There is also a whole section dedicated to Cycling Reports, in which I look at UK Cycling habits with regard to commuting and how this compares to other forms of transport. These are in-depth articles based on UK Census data and are available in the Travel to Work Reports section.
I do accept guest articles from reputable authors who write unique, informative and relevant information on cycling related subjects. If you are interested in becoming a guest author, please read the Guest Post Guidelines and complete the contact form on that page.
I also work with PR companies and individuals to help promote cycling products and events that I think are interesting, useful or just plain downright exciting to cyclists.
I have high editorial standards and don’t accept poor content, nor publish regurgitated press releases. I won’t compliment products that I think are poor and will always offer a true and accurate critique of all products submitted for review, likewise for sportives I’ve entered. Money doesn’t change this as we won’t accept payment for articles or product reviews.
If you’d like to work together, please contact me with a brief outline of your proposal. I’m quite a nice chap but have little patience for those who send me a poor pitch.
