Mani is a competitive cyclist who works a full-time job and manages one of the fastest growing cycling clubs in the world, the Black Cyclists Network (BCN).
Founded in 2018, BCN was created to be a welcoming space for cyclists from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds.
Mani is currently setting up Britain’s first BAME race squad for 2021. The team will compete in London and other parts of England. The project also aims to do social outreach in the community to bring more people into cycling.
Mani’s greatest achievement was competing in the 2019 African Games Cycling Road Race against Tour De France polka dot jersey wearer Daniel Teklehaimanot and Chris Froome’s mentor David Kinjah.
