Chris is no stranger to challenges on the bike. His first challenge was cycling around London’s Richmond Park for 24 hours which was followed up by riding 107km every day for 107 days to fundraise for The Pace Centre. A children’s school and charity for kids with motor based disorders. Since then he has raced many 24 hour races, including the National Championships pulling in many top 10 results. Over the summer he took part in The Silk Road Mountain Race; a 1700km gravel race in Kyrgystan.
Chris has a keen interest in art, design and architecture having studied architecture in London and worked on buildings and store designs internationally. He set up Jam Cycling with a long-term friend to help educate and supply performance focused products in the UK.
Chris tries hard to spend time engaging with his followers through Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube as he feels that people being able to reach out and talk to him is highly important. He is very open about his past of being overweight and struggling with depression and hopes to share his experiences and challenges with others whilst accomplishing amazing challenges on the bike. He has cycled on and off all his life and its an integral part of what he does.
Some of Chris’ goals are to compete in more ultra distance races across Europe, America and Australia and share his experiences and adventures. He’s also targeting the National and World 24 hour time trial championships. Chris is currently one of the youngest 24 hour racers in the UK and has been named as one to watch by Michael Broadwith, Multiple national champion and Lands End to John O’Groats record holder. Fundraising for charity is close to Chris’ heart and he will be looking to continue this through his career.
