We believe the bicycle has a big role to play in building happier, more vibrant and connected communities. We want to help build a future where everyone, whether they’re young or old, little or large, can cycle comfortably and confidently around the place that they live.
So this is our manifesto:
We're here to help build stronger communities. Connecting people locally and inspiring more pedal power is how we do it.
By working together with others who share our mission we'll maximise our impact. Collaboration is at the heart of what we do.
We champion independent & entrepreneurial folk over the big corporate guys. Free range purposeful business is where we're at.
We’re a small team, passionate about helping support more people cycling. We’re not technical, we don’t race and we cycle in our normal everyday clothes.
We also love London. We love its quirkiness. We love its spirit. We love exploring it on our bicycles. We want to help make it a better, happier place to live.

I'm here to steer the ship. I only started riding my bicycle again a few years ago, after 20 years out of the saddle. I wouldn't call myself a 'cyclist' - I drive, catch the train & tube, use the bus and walk too! But cycling is such a great way to travel for local journeys. I don't own any fancy cycling gear and I don't know how to fix bikes. Luckily my trusty old Dutch bike just keeps on working.
I create all the listings, events and blog posts on the website. But there's other stuff too, like....Mum, two kids, one husband, one cat in a household of seven bikes, cargobike included. I stumbled upon the cargo bike lifestyle when my eldest started primary school six years ago. It completely changed my life. Riding with my children turns boring chores like a grocery run into an adventure.
I'm still trying to figure out what kind of 'cyclist' I am. I don't really fit into any categories. I like tarmac and gravel. Lycra on occasion, but mostly jeans and trainers. A quick pootle into town, some thrashing around the woods in the mud, or a 200k across the country. There are so many ways to have fun on two wheels, I don't see any point in limiting my options. I also blog at Rebel Girl Rides.
I'm trying to build a culture of increased nap times and more frequent biscuit breaks. I've been around bikes all my life, from riding in the basket on the Brompton to running alongside through the park. Much prefer bicycles than the car. Cars make me feel queezy and I tend to dribble.
I spend my CycleFox time out and about, visiting bikes shops and cafes building more great new relationships. If you want a visit shout. I love making my way around London by bike.
Our journeys are often shorter than you think. How long would your journey be? How about joining us on ours?
