This bespoke news and blog website features the coolest accessories and apparel in cycling, and understands its target audience.

The site is designed to responsively work across both desktop and mobile, with the simple navigation easing the user journey and engaging imagery matched with equally impressive content.

We sat down wth Ryan Nesbitt, site owner and founder of Cycled, for a chat about their website.

What is Cycled and what does it do?

What would you say the website’s personality is?

We think it’s stylish and professional.

When you were designing the website, did you design with the customer in mind, or did you have a fixed idea on how you wanted to portray the brand?

We wanted the site to be a pleasurable experience for people to visit, so the content and imagery are always king.

We often get comments from brands telling us how we are probably the best-looking news site in cycling.

What’s your favourite thing about the website?

The way we present the imagery and the choice of fonts on the site.

What do you think makes the website different from the competition?

We tend to not go with too many mainstream products – we’re always looking for the cool up-and-coming brands and products you won’t find anywhere else.

Do you have any future plans for the site?

Certainly, and we have some big plans! We could tell you, but then we’d have to kill you.

And how has your experience been as a Heart Internet customer?

Heart Internet has always been a supportive bunch, and will often sort problems for us that might not be “part of the contract”. We’ve certainly never had any major reason to go elsewhere!

We particularly like how Heart Internet appears to be listening to its customer’s support requirements, with first bringing live chat and now adding telephone support. It ultimately allows us to solve technical issues quickly.
