Welcome to Simpson
Simpson is an independent magazine about British road cycling. Whether you're just starting out or a hardened club rider, we offer a unique insight from the very heart of cycling. Simpson is frank and has a sense of humour. It will take no prisoners but it’s also very proud of the rich heritage of British cycling.
Issue 11: The Road Edition, our cover story is an exclusive interview with record breaker and maverick genius Graeme Obree. We ask why cyclo-cross is so popular, charting its forever growing success at grass roots level. In another exclusive interview, we go behind the scenes with Drops, one of the country's best amateur women's race teams, to find out what the future holds for them. Plus we ride the roads of Suffolk and discover that it's the journey and not the destination that inspires us to ride.
Simpson was conceived in 2012 - the greatest ever year for British cycling. To celebrate this success, we offer a range of limited run T-shirts and sweatshirts. 2017 sees the 50th anniversary of Tom Simpson's tragic loss - we pay homage to his memory but celebrate '67 - his greatest year with our 'Mister Tom 50' t-shirt. 'Fortune favours the brave' is our mantra for not only every time we ride but also for everyday life. Whether you're a rider or a spectator there's something unique for everyone.
