Meet Team GB Mountain Biker Luke Cryer
October 7 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
S A Special event is taking place to raise awareness of cycling safety gear and to raise funds for Headway North Staffs
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. He is now back to cycling and wishes to spread awareness of the importance of wearing helmets (particularly to young people). It is especially important as the culture within pump tracks and skateparks is unfortunately such that helmets are often viewed as ‘uncool’ and not worn.
Luke will be holding an event at Kidsgrove Pump Track on Thursday 7th October at 15:30. He will do a short talk about himself and his experiences and the importance of wearing helmets, will give the opportunity for people to ask lots of questions and then will do a demonstration and allow the children and young people at the track to join him. He has received some helmets and other safety gear which we will raffle off over the next week and the raffle will be drawn at the event. The proceeds of the raffle will be donated to Headway North staffs.
