Lapierre Audacio 200 road bike review

A traditional looking aluminium-framed road bike complete with Shimano’s entry-level Claris groupset

Cycling Weekly Verdict

As a road bike for longer rides and perhaps the odd sportive or two, the Audacio represents a very good buy. So while it might not be everyone’s perfect commuter, it is a fine speed machine for the money.

A modern road bike for an era when many people are opting for a drop-bar road machine as a daily commuter.

If your trip to and from work is relatively long and purely on tarmac, then the speedier nature of a road bike makes a lot of sense. (If only to allow you an extra five minutes in bed!)

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, 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, 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.
