Anthony Doyle MBE (born 19 May 1958) [cite web| url=http://www.olympics.org.uk/athleterecord.aspx?at=1121| title=Anthony Doyle MBE|publisher=British Olympic Association] is an English cycle frame builder and a former professional cyclist who was born in Ashford, Liddlesex, England. He was the world pursuit champion in 1980 and 1986. He was a professional rider between 1979 and 1991, riding for various British sponsored teams.

Representing England, Doyle won bronze in the indivual and team pursuit events at the 1978 Commonwealth Games. Doyle finished fifth in the team pursuit at the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow as part of the British team.

As a professional, Doyle became a regular in winter six-day track races during the 1980s, winning several. He was noted for fluid and rapid pedalling, which helped him achieve an unofficial UK time trial record for 25 miles on a 72-inch fixed gear with 56 minutes and 30 seconds.

Doyle received the Bidlake Memorial Prize in 1980 following his first world championship win. [cite web| url=http://www.bidlakememorial.org.uk/Recipients.ht| title=The Recipients since 1933 when the Trust was formed| publisher=The F. T. Bidlake Memorial Trust] He received an MBE for services to cycling in 1989.

He improved on his bronze medals of 1978 when he took the silver in the team pursuit at the 1994 Commonwealth Games in Victoria, Canada. A back injury ended his career.

Doyle was event director of the 2004 Tour of Britain. [cite web| url=http://www.britishcycling.org.uk/news/2004/09_september/08_Doyle.shtml| title=Tony Doyle| publisher=British Cycling| date=September 2004]
