The brand new Cycling Media Awards cover all corners of the cycle press, from specialist magazines and websites, to national and mainstream media, fitness brands and broadcast.
The winners will be voted for by a panel of over 150 judges from the professional cycle press and then announced at the awards evening on Thursday October 16th at The Bloomsbury Ballroom, London. 150 of the UK’s top cycling media will be invited to attend for free.
