December 2013 cover

December 2013 cover

The December issue of Cycling Active sees artouride as their Big Feature from page 108. Covering 8 pages of great feature writing by Laura Laker and photography by Dan Gould. We could not be happier with such coverage. The tour also features us as number one on their list of 7 cycle tour companies in London. Not that this feature will go to our heads, we still have a long way to go, but slowly.

The article highlights some of the main sights and discusses the route in detail. The images capture the essence of the tour and also features one of our screen printed maps, you get with the tour. Any readers out their that are interested by the tour just drop us a line and we can arrange a tour for you.

Coming soon the Italian Cycling magazine  ( is also running a article.

London Festival of Architecture 2013 / Shoreditch Trail

We were asked to provide a cycle tour around 6 of the architectural practices on Saturday around the Shoreditch area. The studios were very welcoming and each one was unique in personalities, work and studios. We managed to get an insiders view of Duggan Morris, Nick Willson, pH+, Scabal, The Blackall Exhibition, Waugh Thistleton, HÛT and Edgley Design. We also got the directors presentation on Stadthaus in Murray Grove ( 9 storey timber structure).

Brompton Urban Challenge

Brompton Bicycles first Urban Challenge (London) took place on 19th May from Look Mum No Hands. 4 of us formed Queen Bee team. 3 non brompton cyclists so my fleet came in handy. A breakfast and coffee mulling over the first set of challenges soon tested our Sunday morning laziness! After set 1 which took us a long time (cycling to Exhibition Road) we managed to claw some time back with some quick thinking and instant scenerio (from St. Pauls, to inside a loo, to lying on the CS7 route!) photographs. Thanks to the team members of Sarah, Claire & Louisa (who had never ridden a bike in the centre of town before) who all dug in and kept on going when things got just a bit silly and last minute. We came home 2nd!
