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.
Our Triathlon and Fitness editor, Nadezhda Pavlova continues to bring a buzz to the website and was the key person in our award winning year online during 2020. In 2021 Nadezhda will move up to a wider portfolio as deputy editor alongside Robert and Larisa. Our editorial team are working closely with Voom Nutrition and Elite Cycling from Italy, to ensure that we always give you the very best information to support your own training programmes. And we welcome mountain bike racer, Rich Duckworth to the team, as we expand our blogs on mountain bike stage races, supporting our database of the very best routes for riders on the web.
As 2021 progresses in a whole new way, our senior editor and triathlon coach, Nadezhda Pavlova has qualified for the Gran Fondo World Championships in the TT Classification. We’re super proud of Nadezhda, who continues to show the extensive depths of her amazing and inspirational talents and athletic ability.

As we develop our work on health and nutrition, bringing even more training tips to our readers, we’ll be joined by Elite triathlete, Beau Smith from VOOM Nutrition. Beau is an international standard athlete, and part of our own joint race team for 2021/22, and is a huge addition to our blogging athletes.
He’ll be giving tips on training, and linking you in to his own running route suggestions in the Lakeland fells and elsewhere; plus sharing his nutritional knowledge from VOOM.
Despite the setbacks this year due to the pandemic, we’ll be putting our team into several mountainbike, 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. 🙂
Our editorial team, led by Robert and Larisa will taking on the task of actively participating in some of the best mtb stage races and events, in order to bring you the very best writing, and to inspire you to take on your own epic mountain bike challenges.
There’s lots more technical stuff on our website too, as we work with brands like Fenwick’s to bring you the very best advice on bike maintenance and upgrades; and we’re going to be working closely with 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 indoor trainers, and Larisa and Robert will be testing them out and writing about how cyclists of all ages and abilities can benefit from indoor training. Along with advice on nutrition and performance from our friends at VOOM Nutrition, we’ve got lots planned for the future. Indoor cycling shouldn’t simply be about racing others on a screen in a warm and cosy environment. It should aim to make your outdoor adventures even more spectacular, finally achieving that ride on the Stelvio or Park Rash. Nutrition is also a key area and one that not all cyclists fully understand, and so we want to improve your overall awareness, making sure that we include nutritional information where we can in our training blogs.
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.
