Laura Laker

Laura Laker has loved cycling since her dad gave her a push on a blue shopper in a field in Somerset. In 2009 she entered the world of journalism, when an internship at a cycling charity gave her the bug in earnest. Ever since then Laura has covered cycling, from policies to products, and trends to travel. Regularly found riding around London and beyond on her thoroughly unremarkable hybrid bike, she has always got her eye out for the next cycling story.
