Meet the Cycling Plus team

Come on in, we won’t bite… We’re cyclists just like you!

John Whitney, Deputy Editor


Senior writer and tireless domestique John has been putting in a shift for Cycling Plus for seven years. Despite having been a ‘proper’ road cyclist for the last decade, he still can’t work out what his main motivation for punishing all-day rides is. A freewheeling attitude towards cake is the popular theory, however.

Earliest cycling memory

As a kid, hurtling into the back window of a parked car at the bottom of a steep descent near my home – my cycling career in microcosm. Loves a climb, falls to pieces on the way back down.

If I were a pro I’d be

Steve Cummings. Occasional derring-do punctuating lengthy spells hanging around the back of the bunch, keeping out of bother.

The best testers in the business

Here at Cycling Plus we take our testing seriously and have been putting road cycling products through their paces for 25 years. Our test team, led by senior technical editor Warren Rossiter, is the best in the business. They’ve got decades of cycling experience between them and know what makes a good – and bad – bike, accessory, gadget or garment. That means you can trust us to bring you honest assessments of every product we feature. If it gets our seal of approval then you can be sure that you’ll be bagging a great buy!

Warren Rossiter, Senior Technical Editor


Approaching two decades of testing bikes, Warren can be found on a daily basis riding and exploring the road and off roads of Wiltshire’s Salisbury Plain in the UK. That’s when he’s not travelling the world to test the latest kit, components and bikes.

Robin Wilmott, Technical Writer


Robin began road cycling in 1988, and with mountain bikes in their infancy, mixed experimental off-road adventures with club time trials and road races. Cyclocross soon became a winter staple, and has remained his favourite form of competition. Robin has always loved the technical aspect of building and maintaining bikes, and several years working in a good bike shop only amplified that.

Simon Withers, Technical Writer


Simon has been cycling for as long as he can remember, and more seriously since his time at university in the Dark Ages (the 1980s). This has taken in time trialling, duathlon and triathlon and he has toured extensively in Asia and Australasia, including riding solo 2900km from Cairns to Melbourne.  He’s been testing bikes and working for Cycling Plus in various capacities for nearly 20 years.
