girodilento is the idea of Scott Purchas, a New Zealander who lives in the UK who wanted to write about road cycling in way that doesn’t try to over everything, but rather tries to focus on products, news and riding worth knowing about.


girodilento was launched in May 2010 and it’s grown and grown and now has a global audience of over 10,000 visitors a month and over 200,000 page views per year.

With so much content and information on the market, the goal of the site is to help readers cut through the “noise” to find those products and news that are worth knowing about. Rather than attempting to cover the whole market, we try to cut through to what we think you’d want to know about.

girodilento is an advertising free site but we will soon launch a premium subscription offer for extra content from some great cycling writers.

As well as this site, you can also follow Scott on Twitter @girodilento. There is also a girodilento Facebook page which features more links and updates that may not make it onto the blog.

If you’re on Strava please feel free to join our club if you’re interested:

There is also an embryonic YouTube Channel:
