Soigneur was born in the Netherlands in 2012, when we set out to create an independent platform celebrating cycling culture. Since 2012 we have paid homage to the breadth of the sport, all over the world, both in writing and with photographs. Soigneur brings together some of the finest stories, reportages, and photo-essays from around the world, online and in print reaching over 1 million people monthly. You’ll find tales of the past and of the present, of pros and of amateurs, of local heroes and of faraway places. Tales of suffering and of bliss.
For the love of cycling.

| From the French verb soigner, ‘ to take care of’. A soigneur is a rider’s best friend at the races. He looks after his rider when he is suffering, and massages him at night, so he is ready to fight another day. More than anything, a good soigneur is someone a rider can talk to. He’s a crucial figure in the sport, ensuring that his riders stay motivated |
