About the Author

Guy Andrews has been a cycling journalist, author and editor for more than twenty years. Before that he worked as a bicycle mechanic, a teacher and an enthusiastic - if not altogether successful - bike racer. In 2006 he founded and co-published the cycle-racing magazine Rouleur, editing the publication for almost ten years. During that time he also produced and edited seven photographic cycling annuals, as well as promoting the related exhibitions in London, New York and Berlin. Guy is an avid collector of vintage photojournalism magazines, especially those on cycling. He lives in London. 

Magnum Cycling
Guy's new book is a collection of the world's best photographers and the exciting and multifaceted sport of cycling – a celebration of the great artists who have captured the most fugitive moments in cycling: the personalities, emotions and human endurance.

City Cycling London
The guides in the City Cycling Europe series give you the confidence to experience a city from the saddle. Think of them like having a local cyclist to show you around. Each volume provides mapping, with cycle routes marked, to help you find your way safely from one destination to the next, includes coffee and cake stops, and features everything you need to keep rolling: cycle-hire schemes, bike shops, places of interest and much more. Half the fun of being on a bike is following your own instincts, so the guides do not set tight itineraries. Explore at a bicycle’s pace, and discover the best each city has to offer. 

Four runners up will also win a copy of Magnum Cycling.
