This is the website of Jim Cotton, freelance cycling writer and content creator. I produce marketing content and creative engagement pieces for brands, and write and edit full features, news stories, race reports, and product reviews for websites.

I attempt to bring my own personality and angle to my work, without jeopardising the demands of the brief.

I work with many publications including Cycling Weekly, Velonews, and Unfound.cc, and work with, or have worked with brands including PRO BIKE TOOL, Pongo.cc, Veloforte, and AMP Human Performance. I am also a long-term ambassador and influencer for Haute Route stage Fondos.

Please do contact me if you’d like to discuss any work or just have a chat:
