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 05 | Summer 2014


Issue five of Simpson is as topically and geographically diverse as you’ve come to expect from your favourite cycling magazine. We travel to the heart of darkness on a soggy night ride to the Essex coast, we venture into the Catskill Mountains in New York State with intrepid cycling brothers Dylan and James Nord, and we nip over to Belgium to catch a Monument on a budget. We also salute the world’s best women riders as they complete their inaugural British stage race, explore that most common of cycling injuries: the broken collarbone, and share the first details of our very own trade team. You’d be mad to miss it!
