Chris Jones (1969) Morecambe (UK)
Hi everyone, my name is Chris (aka Cycling Jonesy) I’m 51 years young and I rediscovered cycling 4 years ago after a break of 32 years, back in the early 80’s you’d find me launching off the top of a quarter pipe on my BMX.
I started cycling again in a bid to lose weight and get fitter, I started at 108 kilo’s and now down to 77 kilo’s.
I’m lucky enough to live in North Lancashire UK which means the Lake District, Yorkshire National Park and the Lancashire moors are all on my doorstep. This means I’ve got beautiful countryside including mountains, moors and lakes to lose myself in and it brings me so much peace.
Cycling has changed my life for the better and I like to share that by encouraging others both as a volunteer with British Cycling and as a social ride ambassador for Fat Lad At The Back.
