Laurence Kilpatrick

Laurence Kilpatrick is a freelance cycling writer from Bristol who specialises in assessing bikes built for long days in the saddle and all things bikepacking, as well as fostering a low-level tyre pressure and chain lube obsession.

Having spent most of his twenties writing about lower-league football, he is now focused on cycling – mainly the pro peloton and ultra-endurance events.

His own experience of the latter intensified during lockdown, where he undertook an Everesting of Ally Pally and a Trenching of Holly Lodge to raise money for charity, and then completed the ~2,500km Pan Celtic Race in 2022.

Laurence is committed to taking cycling deadly seriously, but also not seriously at all. When not riding in a circle around Regent’s Park, he’s normally caught pedalling to Coventry City fixtures.
