Share Article

Following an article published by pro cycling news website Velonation, city bikes retailer Linus Bikes supports a new cycling group’s plan to clean up the sport’s governing body.

On November 29, Linus Bike responds to a Velonation article discussing the formation of a new cycling advocacy group, Change Cycling Now, which plans to reform cycling’s governing body and the sport as a whole.

According the article published on Velonation, many cycling advocates are displeased with the Union Cycliste International (UCI)after the latest Lance Armstrong scandal. The article reports that these advocates include some of the most prominent cycling scientists, journalists, trainers and professionals, such as Dr. Michael Ashenden and Skins chairman Jaimie Fuller.

“The creation of Change Cycling Now reflects the frustration and anger that I, and many people directly involved in the sport feel towards the UCI and their management practices,” Fuller said in the article.

As a result, Change Cycling Now was founded. The article states that Change Cycling Now aims to reform the UCI by debating new rules for clean cycling at a meeting on December 2nd and 3rd. A press conference will also follow the meeting on December 3rd, reports the article.

Representative China Reevers from Linus Bike, a city bikes retailer, said, “Cycling has been getting a lot of bad press lately due to scandals involving professionals using steroids. We think groups aiming to restore cycling to its previously revered integrity are a great thing.”

Linus Bike is a California-based bicycle manufacturer that specializes in making vintage style city bikes and commuter bikes. Not simply a bicycle company, Linus Bike sells a complete line of accessories for the environmentally conscious and for people who have a fondness for European style bicycles and the great tradition of European cycling.
