In The Spotlight - Michael McMullan (Carn Wheelers)

A few years ago I bought a bike, basically for a bit of exercise.  After a bit of encouragement from Pat Purvis I joing Carn Wheelers.  A great club, where I have met loads of great people.

I never knew how seriously I would actually take to the cycling, but when I realised it was a great way to lose weight and keep it off, I stuck at it.

Now I have entered quite a few races, time trials and sportives and love it.  I won one of them, but have since moved up a group and am now just the man who does the donkey work for everyone else.  Great way of getting fit though.
