5 Qs for Olympic gold medallist Ed Clancy
 Where do you like to ride in the UK?
Around where I live and grew up, in Yorkshire and the Peak District. It’s special because the scenery is spectacular, the rides testing and the road conditions generally quite good.
 When did you discover your passion for cycling?
It all started on a plastic tractor with pedals. It was the best Christmas present ever. I properly got into cycling when my dad gave me my first BMX. I haven’t looked back since!
 What are your top tips for new cyclists?
You’ll put in more effort if you enjoy it, so try every cycling discipline and see what suits you. There are some great opportunities to try cycling at the Good Friday Meeting!
