Welcome to Simpson

Simpson is a new 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 04 | Spring 2014


Issue four sees Simpson travel from a muddy field in Suffolk to the glamorous north Mediterranean Italian coast in search of the world’s finest cycling stories for your delectation. On our travels we discovered an Italian bike brand that you probably haven’t heard of before – but that could all change very soon. Slightly to our own surprise, we also discovered a love for cyclo-cross, surely the most fun it’s possible to have in cold winter mud. Staying in Italy, we also cycled l’Eroica, one of the most ridiculously enjoyable bike rides we’ve ever had the pleasure of taking part in – and we give you the chance to join this year’s UK equivalent: l’Eroica Britannia.
