About Our Site
CyclingForFun was formed to offer a unique reference point on how to enjoy cycling.
With fuel costs spiralling and fears for the environment, many people believe now is the time for them to ditch their cars and get on their bikes. CyclingForFun is a fabulous resource for those keen to get the best out of cycling.
The site covers the whole spectrum, from basics such as positioning the handle bars and saddle or mastering the brakes and gears, to the sports of track racing, mountain biking and road racing. Bike maintenance, including how to repair a puncture, is covered, as is road safety and advice on the Highway Code, riding at night and taking out an insurance policy.
CyclingForFun has a section devoted to the equipment required, with guidance on how to choose the right bike for you and pick the best accessories. Video guides offer invaluable visual aids on a variety of topics, including bicycle checks and the gear to wear when cycling.
Regular cycling is a great way to stay fit, and CyclingForFun unearths some interesting cycling fitness facts and looks at ways to use cycling to boost fitness levels. There is also a section devoted to children, with advice for parents keen to get their offspring on their bikes, and a close look at some of the most enjoyable cycling routes throughout the United Kingdom.
Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.
Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.
