Hello Funkateers and welcome to the very first FunkedUp cycling blog.

We've decided to start this to give you guys even more insights into FunkedUp bikes, products and to talk cycling in general!

What's in store?

Here's a wee taster of what we've got in store for this space over the next few months:

FunkedUp news, promotions, competitions, playlists, top cycling destinations across Europe & beyond, bike maintenance & management tutorials, how to guides & assembly tips, infographics, presentations, videos, galleries, case studies, the science of cycling, banter, your stories, general rowdiness and of course.... really long lists (move over Buzzfeed)!

FunkedUp has currently just finished up two really busy months where we attended the Irish Cycle Show (blog to follow) which was held in Dublin the same weekend as the Giro D'Italia.

And we've also been featured in a music video for German producers JUUN who's track 'When It's Alright' is racking up the views on YouTube, just passing 100,000 the other day. The track also features Sam Smith who is currently topping singles charts in the UK and Ireland!

Cycle season is only kicking off and there's a long way to go before the summer is out so we have loads coming up to keep you Funkateers interested and happy!

We're passionate about our bikes, our customers and fans and (as many of you already know) we LOVE to hear from you guys and see where FunkedUp's go to live! So get involved, share your bike stories, photos and adventures with us, comment, complain, bitch and moan but most of all - enjoy it!

;-)

So, as always, Stay Funky!

P.S. if there is anything you'd like to see us talk about let us know in the comments below! :-)
