“When I do something, I do it with a lot of passion”
I started cycling quite late in the game after trying a number of sports in the past from BJJ to MMA to Fencing. I started my cycling journey in 2016 where I used my bike to commute. I was pushing 100kg and wanted to drop the weight and cycling helped me a lot. Cycling gives me freedom where I can jump on my bike after a stressful day at work and cycle until I feel free and also very tired.
Hi there. I am @enahoro73 know by the BCN crew as Big P. The story behind why Big P, will be for another day’s chat 😉. With what I was taught through BCN, I was able to increase my weekly cycling mileage from 30/40miles to 80/100miles, that’s right 100miles per week…Now that’s crazy I hear you screaming…No that’s cycling…Smile.
I am one who likes to motivate, encourage and inspire others to achieve the impossible and put no limits to what one can do.
With BCN, they have given me that platform to do such, and now been given the role as a one of the team captains, I intend to carry out this duty to the best of my ability. Hopefully with catch YOU on our next ride 🤜
BCN founder Mani, created BCN to be a welcoming space for cyclists from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds. I played football at semi-pro level before I discovered cycling. I am a people person. I love meeting and helping people and get excited when I do something that makes another person happy.
A hands-on guy, I always had a passion for bicycles from cycling, building, servicing and repairing them since the age of 10. In my early teens I got involved in many sports; football, athletics, martial arts and snooker/pool. Armed with this knowledge I can help anyone with any cycle related question #askjohnny
Cycling is more than a sport to me; it is a way of life. I learnt to ride when I was about eleven, but I only started cycling properly when I was around thirteen or fourteen. But my enthusiasm for the sport sky-rocketed from there. I want to help build a legacy with BCN, where many more talented BAME riders can develop and dominate the sport the way I plan to.
Since he started cycling in 2013 Mathew has always loved the last kilometre of a race and consistently tries to improve himself to be faster.Additionally he has spent time helping to coach new and younger riders and is always there to lend a hand and give tips to help others improve.
Played many different sports in my younger years captaining and representing my district and county in football and running playing with a number of premiership players in their youth, competing in the FA Cup and attracting attention from professional teams in my area.
I’m very interested in understanding peoples journeys, how they got to where they are and hopefully enabling and inspiring more people to rise up.
Peter started cycling on a road bike in 2016, 108kg at the time, but driven to training for a triathlon. After meeting some of the BCN members (before BCN existed) in 2017 he stuck with the bike and is now a slender 93kg. He started racing crits in summer 2019 with his analytical mind understanding lead out and race tactics leading to wins with other BCN racers in January 2020.
Started cycling since the age of 9 years old and bought my first bike at 18 (CX bike). I got into cycling to get me from A to B easier. In my local area and especially in the black community, football and basketball are the popular sports and I wanted to do something different. I have made life long friends and have improved my cycling ability to now be able to lead group rides.
Everyone knew me as an energetic person when I first got into cycling because I had no idea the unwritten traditions that had been set.
My true achievement in cycling is not only to be the best of myself but to be able to help shape others in becoming the best of themselves and achieve anything they want in this sport.
Fifteen years ago, my car went into repair, the mechanic took near two months to fix it, desperate to deliver my product to customers on time, i had no choice but to borrow my mate’s bike, the ease and efficiency in getting around London town was liberating.
“I’m a nice guy, with some nice dreams”. From a young age I loved cycling. My first bike was a heavy Halfords clunker which i rode with jeans from dawn to dusk. The passion has always been there but now i appreciate the culture of the sport.
I tried racing before but nerves got to me. Older and wiser i’m looking forward to giving both circuit and track another bash.
