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.
Bikes.org.uk is a cycling website with helpful advice on how to become a better cyclist, including fitness & nutrition tips, information on cycling sportives and product reviews.
Bikes.org.uk isn't just another cycling website; it's a platform where my deep personal passion for cycling meets my digital expertise. My aim is to provide you with a personal and honest assessment of the bikes I review in an informative, trustworthy, safe, reliable and inspiring way that enhances your cycling experience and knowledge. Whether you're a seasoned cyclist or just starting your biking journey, Bikes.org.uk has something for everyone.
Cycling Enthusiast for Over 50 Years
Cycling has been more than just a hobby for me; it's a way of life. 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!), across Europe and now have fun on a mountain bike in the hills of North Wales and mountains of Scotland, whilst also doing regular charity bike rides and Sportives across Wirral, Merseyside and Cheshire on my road bike. In addition to participating in the local sportives, we also support the annual Wirral Bikeathon charity bike ride and help cyclists on How to Prepare for a Charity Bike Ride and How to Prepare for a Sportive.
20 Years of Blogging
For the past two decades, I've had the privilege of sharing my cycling adventures, insights, and expertise through blogging. Bikes.org.uk has been a labour of love, where I've documented my personal cycling journeys, given my expertise on reviewed gear, and provided tips and advice for cyclists of all levels. One of our most popular features is the UCI 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. Looking at reader feedback and reviews, one of our most useful articles is the one on How to Import a GPX File to Strava which is a subject that many have found difficult but thankfully this step-by-step tutorial solves easily.
Cycling, Fitness, Nutrition & Reviews
Fitness & Nutrition is an integral part of being a healthy and happy cyclist, and to help facilitate this we have a range of articles to help every type of cyclists, including focus on Cycling Fitness and in-depth articles of Food & Drink.
Bike Reviews are an important part of this website and we have an extensive selection of Road Bike Reviews and Mountain Bike Reviews covering a wide range of bikes, suitable for cyclists at all stages of their cycling journey.

Another popular section are our Electric Bike Reviews, which include a broad selection of eBikes for Adults and a dedicated article on Electric Bikes for Children. While an electric bike looks like any other bicycle, there are a few features that differ, and so we have compiled the following articles to help cyclists new to eBikes, Guide to Electric Bikes, Electric Bike Maintenance Tips and for those looking for Cheap Electric Bikes we have a selection of eBike reviews for many of the leading electric bikes available in the UK, including Hyuhome, Ancheer, Swifty, Eskute, DYU.
Technology plays an important part in many aspects of our daily lives and cycling is no different with Smart Cycling at the forefront of sustainable transportation. One such example is the Urtopia Smart AI Bike with ChatGPT integrated into the bike itself. We also explore the transformative Impact of AI in Cycling.
