Having started on a rusty mountain bike in Spain in 2015, Angus now works for British Cycling and runs Cyced in his free time to help beginner and amateur cyclists get up to speed with cycling.
Welcome to Cyced, your home for beginner and amateur cycling resources.
I’m Angus, and for over a year now I have loved getting to grips with cycling, now being able to cycle lengthy rides and working in the heart of the industry right here in the UK.
It hasn’t been easy and I’ve asked many questions on the way.
Many of those questions I answer right here on Cyced to help newer cyclists get on the road comfortably.
So what sort of things can you expect?
Myself and an amazing team of writers take time off the bike to put together guides, tips and local resources on a county by county basis.
It’s a bit of a mix but whilst we provide great cycling resources for the nation, we also want to dig down locally and tighten the communities.
If you are brand new to cycling, you should check out ‘Why cycling is good for your health’. Prepare to be motivated!
I really hope you find what you’re looking for on Cyced.
Our contributors including the incredible Evan Lewis, create routes and write resources that will make your cycling life much better. All feedback is welcome and please do comment on the articles.
I’d love for you to be part of the community and by signing up to our newsletter, you’ll get exclusive tips and resources not found on the website.
I hope to see you out on the roads soon,
