About Bikes.org.uk, Cycling & Mark Taylor
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 blog 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 blog; it’s a platform where my deep personal passion for cycling meets my digital expertise. My goal is to provide you with informative, trustworthy, safe, reliable and inspiring content that enhances your cycling experience. 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. I don’t profess to be a cycling expert but Bikes.org.uk has become a labour of love, where I’ve documented my personal cycling journeys, given my own honest opinion on actually 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, such as the Tour de France. 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 Blog 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. Once you’ve read our reviews and are ready to buy a bike, take a look at our Bike Deals in this dedicated Shop to compare the best prices online.

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, Sur-Ron.

Getting Started
Bikes are fun. That’s it, that’s all you need to know. Okay, perhaps there are a few more things but the point is, that you should never lose sight of the fact that getting out on your bike is fun and that’s why we do it. In the Getting Started section, we have some great information on the various types of bicycles to help you chose which one is right for you.

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.

Working Together
I like to develop relationships with like-minded individuals, people who share my passion for cycling.

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.
