Simon Richardson for those that don’t know is a double-gold Paralympic cyclist. On the track in Bejing 2008 he won the LC3/4 1km time trial and 3km individual pursuit. He also claimed a silver in the road time trial and assisted team mate Darren Kenny to victory in the road race.

Again I’ll let Phil’s blog tell the next amazing thing the cycling community did and one person in particular.

The upshot of all of this is a speedily recovering Simon and quite possibly one of the most intricate paintjobs on a bike ever.
I’m very proud to say that the publicity shots have by coincidence shown my supporting Twitter ID that of @CliveBees quite prominantly.
The finished article as reported on Road CC. A true work of art and a fitting tribute to Simon and the camaraderie that is the brotherhood of cyclists.
