Vote for your Local Cycling Hero
Published 8 August 2013
Cycling is about more than medals and glory. It’s about fun, freedom – and for some people it’s about extraordinary commitment.
This summer we’re turning the spotlight on the unsung stars of cycling – the people who give up their time and energy to help and inspire others to get the most out of their riding. From all the entries we received, we’ve shortlisted 24 dedicated individuals, each playing a pivotal role in their community by inspiring others to get the most out of their bike riding.
Double World Champion Becky James pays tribute to our finalists:
‘Volunteers are essential to cycling in this country, without them we wouldn’t have a sport and we certainly wouldn’t have Olympic and World Champions. I know how much volunteers have helped my career, so it’s great to see so many people being recognised for giving up their time for cycling. I’d urge everyone to get behind their Local Cycling Heroes and vote!’
