  1. Rainspotting Watch Party

    Rainspotting Watch Party
    The chaps at Pannier and Brother Cycles spent some time cycling across the Scottish Highlands earlier this year and the result was this film: Rainspotting. It was originally due to be shown at various venues around the UK so as this is no longer possible they've gone for a Watch Party instead. Not sure what one of those is? Read...
  2. Bespoked 2018: The UK Handmade Bicycle Show

    Bespoked 2018: The UK Handmade Bicycle Show
      When the deadline for getting a place in the Dirty Reiver came and went without me having firm enough transport plans to be able to commit, Bespoked seemed like a nice alternative to getting my shred on in the Kielder Forest. Bespoked is something I've wanted to go to for a few years, ever since I knew that the...
  3. #STREETSOFCHROME: Trashhand x Chrome Niko Camera Bag Launch

    #STREETSOFCHROME: Trashhand x Chrome Niko Camera Bag Launch
      Dilapidation, graffiti, abandoned spaces. Not typical subjects for the traditional urban photographer. But then Serdar Ozturk (better known by his Instagram-alias Trashhand) is not your typical photographer. Taking a unique perspective on the urban landscape, with a particular focus on the hidden and forgotten spaces in cities, Trashhand’s photography is striking and immersive. Trashhand has been making waves in...
  4. North by North West - Part 3

    North by North West - Part 3
      It's just under 1,000 miles from San Francisco to Squamish but the contrast between the two suggests something further. We catch our international flight to Vancouver immediately, creating confusion with the Department of Homeland Security Officer in the process ("What d'ya mean, you're British and you're coming back to the US the day after tomorrow?"). There's a frisson of...
  5. Limited Edition Ritchey Road Logic Framesets

    Limited Edition Ritchey Road Logic Framesets
      Something exciting is landing at Always Riding very soon... We are all suckers for unique and exciting bikes here, so when we got wind that Ritchey had something special in the works it immediately sparked our interest. Here it is: individually numbered, Red, White and Blue fade Ritchey Road Logic Heritage Edition framesets - a bit of a mouthful...
  6. North by North West - Part 2

    North by North West - Part 2
      If Portland is a compact city, with everything squeezed into a bustling few blocks, then San Francisco is the polar opposite. It sprawls. It also has so so many hills. Big, steep hills. Say San Francisco and the images that spring to mind will be those unique Cable Cars trundling up and down, against the backdrop of Golden Gate...
  7. North by North West - Part 1

    North by North West - Part 1
      Say Portland and as with all good word association games, you are likely to receive a range of responses; Coffee culture. Cool. Rain. Nike. Craft beer. Rain. I know, I mentioned rain twice. That's because the Pacific North West can get a little bit damp. So for a company like Always Riding which is based on the edge of...
  8. A sock-like fit? Say hello to Giro Knit Shoes

    A sock-like fit? Say hello to Giro Knit Shoes
    Has your grandma gone missing? Has the swish and click sound of her incessant knitting been replaced by scone-less silence? If so, Giro has relocated your favourite octogenarian and put her to work knitting its new line of 'Xnetic™' Knit shoes. Sadly, stories of unsustainable tea consumption, cheek-pinching, photo album pass arounds and gossiping breaks amongst this get-up-and-forget-where-to-go workforce have...
  9. The Chrome Welterweight Collection

    The Chrome Welterweight Collection
    In boxing parlance, welterweight sits between lightweight and middleweight. Known for its knock-out combo of speed and toughness, it doesn’t take a great leap of imagination to see why the new Chrome Industries Welterweight bag collection has been so named. Built with lighter fabrics and an aluminium buckle hollowing out the weight alongside uprated reflective tech, the new line looks...
  10. Unveiled: The Brompton Electric

    Unveiled: The Brompton Electric
    Will we soon be living in a city bike e-assisted world, where every bicycle has a motor, and every rider is capable of crossing the city at Tour de France speeds? With the unveiling of the Brompton Electric this week - a long rumoured electric version of the British brand's folding city bike - that world is now one pedal...
  11. Always Riding.....Bikes?

    Always Riding.....Bikes?
    When we started back in 2008, it was with a handpicked collection of apparel from new makers and start-ups (with a smattering of mainstream brands in there for good measure, of course). A little later we added a range of rider-favourite accessories, like bottles, bar-grips, bags & beer openers (you get the picture). Where there was one glaring omission, well...
  12. Choosing your Cambium C13 Saddle Width

    Choosing your Cambium C13 Saddle Width
    With the release of the Cambium C13 one-piece braided carbon frame saddle - a racing evolution of the phenomenally successful Cambium C15 model - Brooks England has taken a decisive step to support the more hard-charging 'on the rivet' road cyclist. With a vulcanised rubber and cotton saddle upper for a reassuring natural flex mated to a continuous carbon saddle...
  13. Castelli - Effortless Simplicity that Still Excites

    Castelli - Effortless Simplicity that Still Excites
    Castelli's effortless simplicity still manages to excite. As we release the new Spring range on the site, memories of last year’s spring rides are apparent in our minds. Longer days, warmer weather and those one day, bleak Classics awaiting the professional peloton. It’s here Castelli made a name for themselves; Milan-San Remo 2013, every pro rider turns up in a...
