Hayfield cycling champ Nick Craig is giving a lecture at the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival tomorrow (Friday).

Nick is a multiple national champion in both mountain biking and cyclocross and has represented Great Britain in the Olympics both on and off-road. He has won the iconic Three Peaks Cyclo-cross twice.

Nick (pictured above) will be interviewed on stage by Chinley-based adventure sports writer and endurance athlete Nik Cook, about his career in cycling, the sport in general, technique and training tips and cool kit in development.

“This is a rare opportunity to get a personal insight into the career of one of Britain’s most versatile and successful cyclists both on and off the road,” Nik explained.

“Nick will give the inside track on what it’s like to ride in the Olympics, the halcyon early days of mountain biking and why cycle touring is his true love.”

The lecture at the Showroom Cinema, Paternoster Row, Sheffield, starts at 8pm. Tickets are £7.60 (concessions available).
