Pedalnorth is written and managed by cycling writers and athletes around the globe, bringing you the very best routes and unbiased information. Many of our team work elsewhere within the global cycling community, as well as completing their role at Pedalnorth and want to give something back, by sharing their own life-cycle with you.

Our new triathlon editor, Nadezhda Pavloa, is bringing a new buzz to the website and magazine, and our lifestyle blogs. Larisa and the team are developing a new area of road and mtb routes, promoting Transylvania road cycling and the wealth of awesome mountain biking trails in the Carpathian Mountains. Finally, Scott will be adding lots of epic bikepacking ideas for those who are looking for  a real adventure on two wheels.

We want to continue to bring you a limited but meaningful selective of reviews, of only the very best kit, to help guide you to the right kit for a perfect combination of performance and style.  Larisa continues to lead the team on this, working with brands from across the globe and helping to drive Pedalnorth forward, with her talent and enthusiasm.
