This is a curated list of websites within the cycling industry, created and maintained right here on Cyced. The idea is to assist any cyclist in anything they may need, from bikes to apps, and make it really easy to find new and great brands or products. This list is constantly being reviewed and updated. All suggestions for additions are welcome.

Bike Brands 

Trek Bikes

Trek Bikes >>: This a USA brand that has been going for around 40 years.  Road, mountain, or city bikes – whatever your fancy take a look at what Trek has to offer.

Scott Bikes

Scott Bikes >>: One of the first bikes I rode was a Scott Hybrid, out in Spain. It’s the brand that got me enthused about the sport, and what a great brand it is.

Specialized Bikes

Specialized Bikes >>They offer some good starting road bikes and have created S-Works for professional riders or those who look for the best of the best.

Boardman Bikes

Boardman Bikes >>: The first bike I owned was a Boardman Hybrid Comp. A good little runner at a good little price. Their high end bikes appear very reputable too.

Pinarello Bikes

Pinarello >>: This premium bike brand is at the forefront of innovation and cycling beauty. Each bike within their diverse range is jaw-droppingly stunning.

Cannondale Bikes

Cannondale >>: I currently ride a Cannondale Synapse and have relished every mile on it. A very reputable brand that you know you’re in safe hands with.

Pinnacle Bikes

Pinnacle Bikes >>: These are created in-house by cycling store Evans Cycles. They are a British brand that launched in 2006 and come in at an affordable price.

BMC Bikes

BMC Bikes >>: These are Switzerland’s finest cycling machines. An innovative brand that is associated with premium build quality, and the finest in style.

Giant Bikes

Giant Bikes >>: A variety of bikes in different cycling types, and a good reputation to go along with it. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Giant bikes.

Bianchi Bikes

Bianchi >>Another strong brand of bikes for strong performance cycling. Their selection is, much like everyone else, good but they tend to avoid colourful design.

Online Stores 

Wiggle Store

Wiggle >>: Definitely my go to online store for cycling. It’s easy to navigate, has good prices on items and most of all provides a pack of Haribo with every order!

Bikesoup

Bikesoup >>: As mentioned in the Secondhand Bike Buying Guide, Bikesoup is a good store for buying premium second hand bikes from cyclists in the UK.

Tredz shop

Tredz >>: Another all rounder store based in South Wales. They have 0% finance options, no quibble returns policy, and my personal favourite, the price match.

Evans Cycles

Evans Cycles >>: I much prefer going into an Evans store than on their online shop, yet it has a few more premium items available than other online stores.

Chain Reaction Cycles

Chain Reaction Cycles >>: A good all rounder when it comes to online cycling stores. Plenty to choose from no matter what type of cyclist you might be.

Halfords

Halfords >>: The obvious high street retailer that is good for beginners. Has everything you need when starting out but you’ll soon want to look elsewhere to upgrade.

Clothing 

castelli

Castelli Cycling >>: A renowned cycling brand whose brand holds a very strong reputation. Great quality, sharp look, and a truly premium range of clothing.

primal clothing

Primal >>: An English company beginning to make a name for themselves. Some stand out designs that will differentiate you from the crowd, at a medium price tag.

sportful

Sportful >>: Having used their arm and leg warmers for over a year, and tried their bib tights, it’s safe to say Sportful are a premium brand with great quality kit.

Gore Bike Wear

Gore >>: A good reliable brand that is equally as proven in road cycling clothing as it is in mountain bike clothing. Similar to Altura, Gore has mainly plain patterns.

rapha cycling

Rapha >>: Grown quickly to become one of the best clothing lines, though most expensive, Rapha is good for the modern day road cyclist. Although some cyclists hate it.

altura clothing

Altura >>: A mid level clothing brand that offer simple and single colour designs. They are great for finding Autumn/Winter cycling clothing and strive to innovate.

always riding

Always Riding >>A ton of choice for every cyclist, even if you’re just a commuter or weekend rider. Brilliant contemporary designs at affordable prices.

Helmets 

Giro

Giro Helmets >>: I wear a Giro helmet and they come in various shapes and price tags. Being one of the leading helmet brands, most stores tend to stock them.

Bell Helmets

Bell Helmets >>: My first helmet was a bell. They’re a good brand that have more of a foot inside the mountain bike scene then they do in road cycling.

specialized logo

Specialized Helmets >>These helmets are pretty slick looking. They also start at a very low price point if you can’t afford to break the bank. Worth checking out.

Lazer Helmets

Lazer Helmets >>: Another leading brand that offer various helmet types at different price points. Check out their crash replacement helmet offer.

Kask

Kask Helmets >>Kask are the helmet provider for Team Sky and are Italian based.  They design their helmets to be as light as possible without sacrificing safety.

Catlike helmets

Catlike Helmets >>These helmets have been around since the 90s and have been used by teams such as Movistar and Cervelo Team.

Cycling Shoes 

shimano logo

Shimano >>: Arguably the most common brand of cycling shoe, and the brand I have. Nice looking, do the job well, and you’ll be able to find good affordable ones.

btwin

Btwin Shoes >>:  Starting at a very low price, these shoes may be ideal for the first time clip-on bike rider. Nothing too snazzy, but a good brand nonetheless.

Giro

Giro Shoes >>: These guys have some awesome looking cycling shoes, much like their helmets, that can make you stand out in the crowd. Lots of colour and styles.

Cycling Components

shimano logo

Shimano Groupsets >>:  These group sets are most common with bikes and popular amongst many. They have many sets to choose from at different prices.

Chris King cycling

Chris King >>: This brand offers premium components and should be looked at when finding smaller items like bottom brackets or headsets for your road bike.

Tektro brake

Tektro Brakes >>So by the name, it’s obvious these guys deal in bike brakes. They have a selection of traditional bike brakes, as well as disc brakes.

SRAM

SRAM >>Often put up against Shimano’s offering SRAM’s components are much more often associated with mountain biking than road cycling.

clarks cycle systems

Clarks Cycle Systems >>There is a variety of products on offer here. You can find bike brakes, bike pedals, handlebar tape and so much more.

Cycling Apps 

strava apps

Strava >>: The must have data tracking app for all your rides. If you’re unfamiliar with Strava, check my article out for a beginners introduction to it.

endomondo

Endomondo >>: An app that records your data, like Strava, but provides motivation and support for when you try and better your time or distances.

bike doctor app

Bike Doctor App >>: A perfect information based app that gives you information on repairing almost everything that could go wrong with your bike, on a ride.

Magazines 

Cyclist Magazine

Cyclist Magazine >>: A slightly newer magazine that is by far my favourite. It has fantastic writing, amazing stories, and inspirational photography worth seeing.

rouleur magazine

Rouleur Magazine >>: This magazine has eight issues a year and is all about cycling advocacy and portrays this through passionate writing and excellent photography.

cycling weekly magazine

Cycling Weekly >>: A good magazine for articles and news, but one that is slightly “throwaway” (forgive the term). It’s been going for 125 years and holds a good reputation.

Bikesetc

Bikes Etc >>: A cycling magazine that informs you on all things, from what cycling gear to buy to information and guides relevant to most cyclists.

Forums 

CTC Forum

CTC Forum >>The largest cycling forum out there, with many boards in different aspects of cycling. Some great conversations and learning opportunities to be part of.

cyclechat

Cycle Chat >>: My recommendation if you’re new to cycling. A very friendly space with lots of good information that won’t blow over your head, like some other forums.

bike radar

Bike Radar >>: A spawn off the mainstream cycling blog, this forum is a lot more tightly confined than others, and catagorises their boards into cycling types, including commuters.

Reddit

Reddit >>: UK Bike is a brilliant community of cyclists discussing all things cycling. There are also many other cycling subreddits to follow and join.

Running

babble out

The Babble Out >> Various running and fitness information including this post that shows you 5 top running apps. It’s good to mix up your cardio!
