About Us

Interviews and concise cycling posts from the pocket-size cyclist and friends.

Welcome to Cycling Shorts.cc, based in the cycling capital founded in 2008 by Anna Magrath, a designer, journalist, writer and cyclist. Seeing a gap in the market Anna decided to get some exclusive interviews with her pro cycling and para cycling friends in the run up to the 2012 Olympics to gain insight in to their preparation and training. Working with the BBC and CH4 to provide them with contacts and content for 2012. This was the start of what would become CyclingShorts.cc

CyclingShorts.cc now consists of equally obsessive cycling professionals; pro riders, coaches, team managers, writers and journalists, photographers and cycling enthusiasts of all disciplines.

In 2017 we launched an online shop of specially curated products that we feel are perfect for cyclists and fans, whether on/off the bike.

Our interviews (often lengthy), and general cycling news (concise), includes race reports, photo galleries, product reviews, competitions and interviews. We hope you’ll come along for the ride!

Cycling Shorts.cc are official sponsors of The Racing Chance Foundation, Team22 WRTTeam Jadan Weldtite and personal sponsors of cyclists Amy Gornall & Fraser Martin.
