We have four clear, simple objectives:
- To continue to provide news, reviews and features of innovative human powered design
- Support the coverage of womens cycling
- Celebrate the benefits of a cycling life, particularly the mental health benefits
- Provide a focus on military veterans using bicycles, trikes, hand cranks and adapted machines
- To inspire others to take up cycling, no matter what format that may be in
Velo Vision magazine was established in 2000 by Peter Eland. From his base in York, he created a magazine that encompassed more diversity and variety in cycling than ever before seen in a single publication or website. Covering bikes for transport and touring, innovative cycle design and bike culture everywhere, the formula was as popular then as it is now.
In 2015, after producing Issue 48, Peter passed over the running of the magazine to Howard Yeomans. Howard is a long-term reader of Velo Vision and has worked with cycles for many years. His mobile bike repair service ‘Bikes Made Good’ was featured on the cover of Issue 41 in fact.
Following Howard’s time at the helm Simon Webb has taken on the publication. Simon has a background in global publishing and marketing, both online and in print. He credits cycling with saving his life and as much as he can incorporates cycling into his every day life.
