A champion of indoor cycling

Sometimes, it isn’t about following a commercial agenda – at least, not for me.

I have a genuine passion for indoor cycling, and with it a deep-rooted desire to do what I can to empower and grow our whole sector.

Indoor cycling is already an incredibly exciting field but I believe that, by sharing best practice, we can all rise to even greater heights.

It was this belief that, in 2017, led me to conceptualise a new magazine – one that would embrace and champion the very best of indoor cycling across the whole fitness industry, from EMEA to Asia, Australia to the Americas.

My vision was to share ideas, stories, experiences and insights that would inspire the indoor cycling sector, driving even greater innovation and growth.

I envisaged this magazine as being brand- and supplier-neutral – truly not a commercial vehicle, but one designed simply to spread best practice.

It would also be completely free for everyone to read – a valued, and highly valuable, resource for everyone involved in the world of indoor cycling.

That magazine is RIDE HIGH, which since the end of 2017 has been published four times a year. It is fast becoming a must-read for indoor cycling operators and enthusiasts the world over – but we don’t want it to be a one-way conversation.

That’s why we’re inviting you to suggest topics we might like to cover in the magazine, or simply to give us your feedback. All ideas are welcome – just drop us an email:

If you’ve missed anything so far, never fear – we’ve made our entire archive available to read and download, for free, on our new website:

And, of course, if you haven’t yet signed up to receive the magazine, please do so. It is, and will always be, completely free, available to read online and as a PDF download.

We look forward to hearing from you.
