Mick's ups-and-downs

Mick W combined some good solid bike training with an entry into last month’s National Cycle Challenge – a scheme designed to encourage bike-commuting to work. Mick’s impressively dedicated 23 days and 300 miles of commute was enough put him in 4th position in the challenge for the whole of his home county of West Yorkshire.

Not content with hammering the bike, he’s also been putting in some really impressive runs and a 5K PB at York’s parkrun bears testimony to his form. This was his first sub-19 minute 5K but very probably won’t be his last.

Mick has been working hard on both disciplines with a view to making an impression in cross duathlon this Autumn and indeed, on the15th October, he made this season’s multi-sport debut at Clumber Park in One Step Beyond’s 5K run / 17K MTB / 2.5K run Sprint event.
