The freedom, fun and fitness aspects of cycling mean different things to different people. Collect together any group of cyclists, and you'll often get wildly different answers to why they ride, and what they get out of it.

For some it's the ideal release from the stresses of work (or even home life), a way to unwind and relax. For others it's a way of getting fit, sometimes alone and sometimes in the company of friends.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
