BARNSLEY-born Olympian Ed Clancy was on hand to open a new cycle park last Friday.
Ed, from Ingbirchworth, is a triple Olympic-winning champion and the most successful team pursuit rider in history.
Having been appointed by South Yorkshire’s Mayor Oliver Coppard as the county’s active travel commissioner, he attended Mapplewell Park to open the facility.
Ed said: “I’m committed to using my platform to get more people of all ages to walk, cycle, scoot or skate around South Yorkshire and this means giving people a real, safe choice when it comes to their journeys.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
