It’s possible some readers may not have heard of Ryan Leech. I pity your sheltered lives! He is a megastar in the world of elite trials riding, requiring sublime physical fitness, bike handling skills, concentration and balance. Here are some examples of what I mean. Prepare to be amazed.
What I really like about the guy, though, is that he has used his position as a platform for environmental advocacy, incorporating it into his public appearances and films. Here’s a clip of Ryan’s riding that probably isn’t what his usual fan-base was expecting, but sets out the case for more people riding more often and at the same time shows him to be someone with bikes central to his whole lifestyle.
I like it a lot (including the Fat Freddy’s track)! And would love some more of that cycling infrastructure here!
