Cycling, also called biking or bicycling, is the use of bicycles for transport, recreation, exercise or sport. People engaged in cycling are referred to as “cyclists”, “bikers”, or less commonly, as “bicyclists”. Apart from two-wheeled bicycles, “cycling” also includes the riding of unicycles, tricycles, quadracycles, recumbent and similar human-powered vehicles (HPVs).
Bicycles were introduced in the 19th century and now number approximately one billion worldwide. They are the principal means of transportation in many parts of the world. Cycling is widely regarded as a very effective and efficient mode of transportation optimal for short to moderate distances.

    Aevolo Cycling, the U23 development team run by Michael Creed, will support a composite women's squad for the Tour of the Gila stage race in Silver City, New Mexico, May 1-5, the team announced today.

  • Woods aiming high again at Liege-Bastogne-Liege
    on April 25, 2019 at 8:02 pm

    Michael Woods (EF Education First) is once again aiming for a top result in Liege-Bastogne-Liege, although this time around there are plenty of differences compared to 2018. The course, whilst still very hilly, is also radically altered from 2018, with a much harder middle section to the 260-kilometre race as well as the return of a flat run-in to central Liege, rather than a long grind up to Ans. And after last year’s runners-up spot, Woods can no longer be described as an outsider. On […]

  • Majka back to his best as Giro d'Italia nears
    on April 25, 2019 at 7:10 pm

    Rafal Majka (Bora-Hansgrohe) landed yet another third place at the Tour of the Alps in Cles on Thursday, but after a difficult 2018 season and his last victory coming during the 2017 Vuelta a España, the Polish climber and Grand Tour rider is just happy to be back at the sharp end of the action. In the absence of teammate Peter Sagan, Majka and Davide Formolo will lead Bora-Hansgrohe at the Giro d'Italia, with Pascal Ackermann the German team's designated sprinter. Majka is using the […]

    on April 25, 2019 at 6:40 pm

    Vincenzo Nibali eased up before the finish line in Cles after sprinting shoulder to shoulder with Tao Geoghegan Hart (Team Sky), admitting defeat to his younger rival and accepting that stage 4 of the Tour of the Alps would not be the day to end his 13-month spell without a victory. The Bahrain-Merida team leader ended his altitude training camp a few days earlier than in recent years to be fresh for the Tour of the Alps and so perhaps find a morale-boosting victory. He has attacked on each of […]

    on April 25, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    Campagnolo has launched a new 12-speed Chorus groupset, which sits below the more superior Record and Super Record groupsets but features plenty of trickle-down tech from its bigger siblings. Campagnolo was the first of the big three groupset manufacturers – Campagnolo, Shimano and SRAM – to launch a 12-speed groupset last year, updating the groupsets earlier this year with an electronic version of the Super Record groupset. The new Chorus groupset features similar ergonomics, […]

Team Sky’s young talent, who will play a key role support Egan Bernal at the Giro d’Italia, respect the palmares of their older, big-name rivals but were […]

    on April 25, 2019 at 2:11 pm

    Anna van der Breggen has had a stranglehold on the Flèche Wallonne title for half a decade now, but Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton-Scott) came closer than she ever has to unseating her compatriot at the top of the Mur de Huy. Van Vleuten came from a long way back to close the gap to Van der Breggen on the steep climb, overhauling a number of struggling riders along the way. She managed to reduce her deficit to just one second as she crossed the line for second place – just her […]
