Yorkshire Proficient at Cycling

Cycle Proficiency Badge

Those guys at Cycling Info always seem to have a camera on them when cycling or walking and are proficient photographers to boot. These results from York show some of the fun of cycling.

Yorkshire and 2012 Olympic Cycling

Cyclist Ed Clancy won a gold and a bronze medal in track cycling. He was born in Barnsley and lived for most of his life, so far, in the Huddersfield area.
Lizzie Armitstead was the toast of Otley when she clinched silver in the women’s cycling road race.
Not exclusively cycling but the triathlon includes cycling as one of the disciplines so the Brownlee brothers gold and bronze efforts count towards our cycling tally.
None of our Olympic success would have been possible if it wasn’t for a roll call of support staff, local clubs and regular participants in the hobby and sport at all levels.

Of course having great scenery in which to train must help!
