Many know Ed as HYPE’s Cycling Project Coordinator where he use his extensive cycling skills and knowledge to help make a difference in the lives of others who were inactive, socially isolated or heading down the wrong path. Since May 2017 Ed has steered many people along the cycle path to a better future, teaching them new skills and helping to raise their self-esteem and activity levels through cycle maintenance sessions, guided bike rides and mountain bike sessions.
Ed was instrumental in the formation of HYPE Bikes Community Cycle Club and has developed a cycling activity programme for young people preparing for future employment in the cycle trade. His weekly Soup & Cycle session has brought the people of Birkenhead together to ride in a friendly environment and socialise over a hot meal.
Ed’s journey has not always been plain cycling and recently he featured in an article in We Are Cycling UK’s website and you can read the full story here.
