Welcome to

Pedalnorth is written and managed by cycling writers and athletes around the globe, bringing you the very best routes and unbiased information. Our team work within the global cycling community, alongside their role at Pedalnorth simply to give something back, by sharing their own life-cycle with you.

We really want to help you to find your own cycling vacation location, with some of the best places to ride, on road or trail. Leading the way, with Robert, Nadezhda, Larisa and our team are here to share their cycling knowledge and experience with you.

For 2023, we’ve got lots more great ride ideas for you, as we share our own favourite cycling routes in Spain, and especially in and around Barcelona and Northern Spain, where Nadezhda is based. This mountainous and coastal region of the country, is one of the best places in the world for cycling, and we’ll be sharing it with you. Our gravel bike coast to coast route is now live, and our nutrition partners at Voom  have produced an awesome guide for the route, along with superb videos to wet your adventure appetite.

As we continue to develop our cycling and mountain biking routes, bringing you the very best natural mountain bike trail rides and routes in Europe, we’ll be working closely with Orbea Bikes, from the north of Spain and the Basque region. We’re going to develop a new ‘Remote Rides’ section with Orbea U.K. head of marketing, Lee Williams, using his expertise as a former national mtb XC champion, to bring you the very best remote mountain bike routes  – for real adventures on 2-wheels!

We’ve got lots of great travel ideas coming too, as we develop our Bikecation section, with ideas for short cycling breaks all over Europe, on tarmac and trail. Finally, we’re working closely with the historical and magical city of Sibiu in Transylvania, to help to develop awareness of this great cycle tourism location, that is yet to be discovered, but which has so much to offer. If you’re looking for adventure on 2 wheels, then you’re in the right place – Pedalnorth!


We’re really excited at our new Pedalnorth editorial team kit this year! Designed by Nadezhda and the team at DS Pro, in their custom team kits dept.; it’s a high performance cycling kit, made for long days on the bike, when style is also important 😉

We wore the kit on our recent trip to Transyvania, where Nadezhda won 2 races. We also did a photoshoot with Larisa and Nadezhda in the world heritage city of Sibiu – a magical place that you all should visit. And, Robert has been out and about in the North Yorkshire hills in his Pedalnorth kit, testing it in the Dales National Park.

Why don’t you take a look at the DS Pro website today yourself, and, if you’re looking for a unique design for your own team, get in touch with them!
