We accept guest posts from reputable authors who write unique, informative and relevant articles on cycling related subjects.
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.
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!) and now have fun on a mountain bike in the hills of North Wales, do regular charity bike rides and quite a number of sportives across Wirral, Merseyside and Cheshire on my road bike.
Guest Posts on Cycling, Sportives, Nutrition & Fitness
Guest posts must always be written solely for the Bikes.org.uk website and must not have been previously published, online, digitally or in print. Articles must be cycling related or of interest to our readers, which may, for example, be other active sports like skiing, boarding, hiking & water sports or health, nutrition & fitness related. Cycling related topics include things like bike reviews, cycling equipment reviews, cycling news & events, road safety issues or campaigns, and many other topics like these.
We are happy to publish articles on subjects that we believe our readers would be interested in, such as healthy living, foods and nutrition but we will not publish an article of low quality, on generic topics or ones that are off topic.
