About the Author

Charlie Allenby is an established cycling journalist and has written about all things two-wheeled for titles as varied as Time Out London, Bike Radar and Red Bull. He's always been a lover of pedal-powered fun and decided to combine his two passions - riding and writing about riding - back in 2013. When not writing about bikes, he can either be found weaving his way through traffic in central London on his sturdy steel single speed or exploring the country lanes that wind their way around the city's outskirts on his weekend-best road bike.
