I think it’s great that a charity can help encourage more people to get out on their bike. When you sign up to one of Action’s rides, you know you’re helping their fight to save tiny lives.”

Martyn is a former British and World Champion mountain bike trials rider, stunt rider and team manager.

He had been riding professional trials since 1993 and is often described as a mountain biking legend. Known worldwide for his ‘Bike Party’ You Tube video which went viral, he has been credited with turning trials from a niche form of riding into the sport it is today. Martyn was paralysed in an accident in 2013, during a bike trials demo at the British Moto GP. He has come a long way since then!

Currently he is a producer/director at Shift Active Media and he also owns Ashton Bikes Ltd.

We are delighted that Martyn has agreed to be an ambassador for our annual 'Champions of Cyclesport' fundraising gala.
