Structured Rides

Structured Rides

I've been part of Bynea for 12 years and they played a huge role in my development from a complete novice junior to an elite cyclist having raced on 4 continents and become a 2 time British Champion.

The blueprint the Club offered me then still exists now, and I am trying to play an active role in its development with activities like the Structured Rides. Feel free to email me about anything, anytime.
