Jon Gildea's Para-cyclist Journey

BY JON GILDEA
@ VOL 18 ON SEP 07, 2017

Jon Gildea began mountain bike racing at the age of 13 and represented Great Britain as a junior rider. He always remained a keen cyclist and in 2012 he was badly injured in a mountain bike accident and broke his left leg badly. This injury meant that he was now eligible for para-cycling events and after being classified as C5 he was accepted onto the British Cycling Paralympic Development programme in 2013. 

After joining the Great Britain Cycling Team in 2013 Jon made rapid progress on the track and road, his career highlight so far becoming a double world champion at the 2017 UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in Los Angeles.

Pecha Kucha Manchester vol 5

Hi there, Well what a night. It was our first event at hosts in Manchester and we had a great turnout. 60 people came to listen to a diverse range of presentations from musicians to art lecterers. Bird watchers to science students. One of the best things about the night was that many people have never heard of the concept before. They had no idea what to expect and went away with a great feeling and promised to tell their friends about it. we're already working on the next night which will be at the end of Summer so keep coming back and details will be up soon.
