Chris Sidwells
I am a freelance writer, story teller and editor with 16 years experience. I’ve provided content and/or photographs for a multitude of features in magazines and websites including Cycling Weekly, Cycle Sport, Cycling Active, Cycling Fitness, Tour, Bicycling, GQ Magazine, Bicycle, The Roar, Men’s Fitness, Running Fitness, the Guardian, Independent, Daily Telegraph, Sunday Times and the BBC.

I’ve written 21 books on every aspect of cycling, three of them coffee-table books, supplying photographs as well as words for some of them. Most have run to multiple editions, some have been best-sellers in their genre and many have been translated and are sold throughout the world. I've also contributed to or edited ten other titles.

In November 2018 I launched my own independent publishing business called Cycling Legends Cycling Legends has two major areas of expertise; the creation of standard and illustrated books, and the provision of print-ready designed content for other publishers, public bodies and for businesses to use online or on paper.

The Cycling Legends illustrated book series embodies the Cycling Legends publising mission; telling the full and little heard or untold stories through words and rare or previously unpublished pictures. Cycling Legends is a unique concept in British cycling media.
