About Bikes.org.uk

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, bike reviews and other cycling 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.

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 and Cheshire on my road bike.

The Bikes.org.uk website is owned and operated by a private individual, details of which are available from Nominet. Full details of the Terms & Conditions of use of this website, Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy, can be found on the Notices page.

Guest Posts on Cycling, Sportives, Nutrition & Fitness

If you would like to write an article or post as a guest author on this cycling blog, please read the following guidelines before contacting us using the contact form below.

Guest posts must always be written solely for the Bikes.org.uk website and must not have been previously published, online, digitally or in print. Articles must be cycling related or of interest to our readers, which may, for example, be other active sports like skiing, boarding, hiking & water sports or health, nutrition & fitness related. Cycling related topics include things like bike reviews, cycling equipment reviews, cycling news & events, road safety issues or campaigns, and many other topics like these.

We are happy to publish articles on subjects that we believe our readers would be interested in, such as healthy living, foods and nutrition but we will not publish an article of low quality, on generic topics or ones that are off topic.

Product Reviews

I like to develop relationships with like-minded individuals, people who share my passion for cycling. In this regard, I also work with PR companies and individuals to help promote cycling products and events that are interesting, useful or just plain downright exciting to cyclists. I publish genuine reviews based on our actual experience, good or bad. In order to do this, you’d need to send me the product you’d like reviewed. You can contact me at mark[at]bikes.org.uk
