Welcome to Pedalnorth.com

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’ll be expanding routes all over the globe this year, with new road cycling routes from Nadezhda and Katya in Florida, Mary Wilke in Europe, and gravel bike and road cycling routes in Colorado and the USA from Hannah. After the tragedies that many will have experienced during the pandemic, we want to bring you more ideas for bikecation vacations too, and we’ll be writing more about places to visit and ride, with Stephan taking a lead on some classics in Europe to provide a personal challenge. Chris is busy developing our new Youtube channel, so take a look at the Pedalnorth videos as we grow our content videos.

Finally, Robert and Larisa will be off to Verona in the summer too, riding the Alé Eddy Merckx event. There’s so much happening at Pedalnorth during 2022, so join us in turning the wheels forward!


Despite the setbacks due to the pandemic, we’ll be putting our team into several mountain bike, road and triathlon races during 2022, as we write about the very best events from a competitor perspective.

Larisa, Beau, Steve, Rick, Scott and Nadezhda will be riding and racing all over Europe and beyond, as we partner with PRESCA and VOOM Nutrition, with our writers showing their athletic prowess and writing skills just for you.  🙂

Beau and Larisa will be leading the team as we ride and race in Romania this summer.


There’s lots more technical stuff on our website too, as we work with brands like Elite from Italy, to bring you lots of advice and information about indoor cycle training and how it can help you to reach those far off and beautiful places. Elite make the very best interactive trainers, water bottles and other cycling equipment, and we’ve got a wealth of information for you, as Larisa and the team use their products to find out more.


We’re delighted to announce our new kit partnership with eco-friendly U.K. sportswear brand PRESCA. This dynamic and growing brand will be providing our editorial and team kit, allowing us more freedom to bring you truly independent cycling information, that identifies with our own ethical approach. Meeting with Presca co-founder, Peter Lillie, meant meetings on bikes, with coffee and cake – always a great start to a partnership  😉

Having sponsored leading men’s and women’s teams, both in the U.K. and Europe, PRESCA work tirelessly to show that stylish performance clothing can also protect the planet. Take a look at the PRESCA website and choose your own eco-friendly kit from their modern performance clothing.
