The inspirational Michael Bonney
Michael Bonney, lynchpin from Orange is a great friend of the Fort William World Cup and a major name in the UK Bike Industry. In March he suffered a serious fall from his road bike in a Sportive. Falling from his bike changed his life but Michael Bonney wants people to ride bikes more, and he personally wants to stay in the industry that he loves and knows so well.
“I don’t want anybody to stop riding bikes because they think they might injure themselves. I want people to get out there and ride bikes. I’ve spent all of my working life getting people excited about bikes and even though spinal injuries happen to cyclists, and especially to mountain bikers, it’s very rare. I was unlucky, shit happens. Get out there and ride, for me.”
Michael, we salute you and hope to see you in Fort William soon.
