Luke Cryer, a team GB mountain biker and medallist, sustained a brain injury last year whilst cycling on a pump track. His injuries were not nearly as serious as they could have been because he was wearing a helmet. Luke organised an event to raise awareness of cycle safety at Kidsgrove Pump Track on 7th October. He also wanted to raise funds as a thank you for the support he received Headway North Staffordshire during his recovery. Ant Thane of Humanoid, offered to cover the event free of charge. This is the completed video of the event.
