Monument Cycling is a hub for cycling events, fondos, and races. You’ll also find the latest news and entertainment for the UK’s domestic cycling scene.
After a few years of racing bikes and studying for a law degree, I came to a crossroads: qualify as a solicitor and work in the city for the rest of my life, or pack it all in and try to do something I loved.

An early interest in photography led me to study it at college. While there, I was swallowed up by the Cambridge and London fixed gear scene. I’ve always ridden my bike for the love of it, and 10 years later I’ve moved onto the road scene!
