Olympic silver medallist Bryan Steel will front the first event in a new series of cycling speaking events which aim to inspire and prepare riders for the season ahead.
Steel will be joined by James Golding, a cancer survivor who cycled across America in 2010, at Spoke ‘N Word, to be hosted at the Frontline Club in London on Wednesday February 29.
The 43-year-old Steel won team pursuit bronze at the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000 before upgrading to silver four year later, also winning five World Championship medals in the same period.
“To be part of Spoke ‘N Word is a great opportunity for me to help and inspire people start their journey in achieving their cycling goals in 2012,” said Steel.
Anthony McCrossan from Cyclevox added: “Having been involved in the UK cycling industry for so many years now, the team at Cyclevox wanted to give riders something to motivate and inspire them.
“So, we have launched a series of speaking events to help and educate those who are trying to get into the sport, as well as those who love the sport. We are lucky to work with so many inspiring riders, presenters and commentators so now it’s time to let people hear more widely, the information we hear every day.”
Tickets cost £15, with capacity limited to 100. Future events are being scheduled nationwide. Visit www.cyclevoxspokenword.com for more information or to purchase a ticket.
