Why Conquista?

The word, which occurs in Spanish, Portuguese and Italian, means “conquest”, or “achievement”.

Cycling is all about overcoming. Cheating the wind. Defying gravity. Beating the peloton around France. Beating the traffic to work. Beating your mates to the café.

As often as not, it’s about conquering yourself. Clambering out of bed for a cold morning commute. Squeezing out a bit more effort when your lungs and legs are bursting.

So all cyclists are conquistadores – every one of us, every time we ride.

We aim to create a like-minded, interactive community around cycling and the cycling lifestyle.

We love to hear your thoughts, wishes and views.

By participating you will help shape the community.
