Having spent most of his adult life following sport from the comfort of his armchair, Caven discovered the joy of cycling late on but has tried to make up for this since.
Working in the industry has allowed Cav to spend more time not only on his bike but talking about cycling 24/7 – who wouldn’t enjoy that? There have been many adventures along the way, first riding off-road in the Alps and Mountain Mayhem before road took over.
Multiple sportive classics have been tackled, with L’Etape du Tour, La Marmotte, Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, Liege-Bastogne-Liege and the Amstel Gold race topping an impressive palmares. UK epics haven’t been forgotten either with the Dragon Ride, Etape Eryri and RideLondon ticked off, and Velo South to come. Cav has even represented Great Britain in his age group at the amateur road World Champs in Denmark.
Always up for a challenge, Cav has conquered 300km+ one-day rides including the London Revolution, Chase the Sun and Bike vs Boat. The journey is still in progress, but it’s about having fun and sharing that experience with others.
