BikeRadar‘s 2020 Bike of the Year awards

Over the past six months, our expert team of testers from BikeRadar, Cycling Plus magazine and Mountain Biking UK magazine have been putting the most innovative, exciting and popular bikes of 2020 through their paces to bring you our annual awards.

In total, 61 road, gravel and mountain bikes were tested across a range of categories – and now we're ready to reveal our winners.

Our testing took us from our local roads in the west of England to the mountain ascents of Gran Canaria, via bike park loops in Wales, off-piste singletrack in the Forest of Dean and the rocky trails of Spain's Sierra de Guadarrama mountains.
