Editorial

Rob Spedding — Content Director

Rob's first proper road bikes were a Raleigh Sprint in the early 1980s and then a Trek 1000 in 1999. A former competitive runner, Rob has repeatedly threatened to become a competitive cyclist in every discipline from time-trailling to hill climbing to bike polo. We're still waiting.

Rob Weaver — Technical Editor-in-Chief

A riding encyclopedia of bikes and kit, Rob spends a lot of time travelling the world for the latest product launches and organising how and where all our gear gets tested. Super-stylish when it comes to riding, Rob has no fears when it comes to hitting the trails with the industry’s best.

Helen Cousins — Head of Production

When Helen's not whipping our copy into shape and keeping on top of
our content schedule she can be found riding her road bike on her local country roads and routes or trying to book her next trip to Mallorca for sunnier climes.

Warren Rossiter — Senior Technical Editor

Approaching two decades of testing bikes, Warren can be found on a daily basis riding and exploring the road and off roads of Wiltshire’s Salisbury Plain in the UK. That’s when he’s not travelling the world to test the latest kit, components and bikes.

Alex Evans — Technical Editor

Alex used to live in Morzine where he developed a scary ability to make the steepest and gnarliest trails look like a walk in the park — occasionally resulting in bone crunching crashes at World Cup downhill races. Since hanging up his racing shoes Al can be found out on his trail bike.

Tom Marvin — Technical Editor

Tom has been mountain biking since the age of 13, with a love of fast and flowing trails, or steep, slow and tech. He spends most of his time riding trail and enduro bikes, but will happily dip his toes into the murky world of cross-country and gravel.

Oli Woodman — SEO & Communities Editor

Now officially part of the BikeRadar furniture, Oli enjoys all sorts of bicycles, has a keen eye for technical detail and can tell the good from the bad when it comes to gear. Oli also has an unhealthy interest in older motor vehicles, which keeps him poor but happy.

Jack Luke — Assistant Editor

Jack has been riding and fettling bikes for his whole life. Always in search of the hippest new niche in cycling, Jack is a self-confessed gravel dork and thinks nothing of bivouacking on a beach after work. Also fond of his tandem, Cecil, cup and cone bearings, skids and tan wall tyres

Matthew Allen — Senior Writer

Matthew is an expert on bike tech and a lover of practical, beautifully-engineered things. Originally a roadie, he now dabbles in all disciplines and has tested a huge array of bikes, cycling kit and riding gear over his many years of testing.

Mildred Locke — Staff Writer

Mildred’s a utilitarian cyclist at heart, determined to do everything on two wheels, whether it’s commuting or moving house. Her ideal ride covers long distances through remote countryside, on mixed terrain that offers a bit of crunch. Easily won over by steel frames coupled with a 650b/plus tyre combo.

Joe Norledge — Video Manager

After a particularly nasty snowboarding injury Joe got into road riding around 10 years ago. Since then, he's raced nearly every discipline all over the world now favouring XC marathon and hill climbs. He's starting to get a few grey hairs, but is as keen as ever to race and test all the latest kit for BikeRadar.

Felix Smith — Videographer

Having ridden mountain bikes through his teenage years, Felix found a new passion for riding on the road after a cycle tour through Japan. Since this eye-opening trip, Felix has been swept up in self-supported ultra-endurance cycling and is never far from his next big adventure.

Max Wilman — Videographer

Max has been riding bikes for as long as he can remember, and during his teenage years loved getting airborne, riding jumps and freeriding. He also built and rode trials in his local woods around the South Downs. After spending six months as a bike guide in Greece during the summer of 2018, he's now started riding enduro.
