William Champluvier 49 University Of Bristol Cycling Club

William Champluvier

Social Secretary

Will started cross country mountain biking in 2016, but moved to enduro fairly soon after when he realised that wearing lycra was a questionable lifestyle choice. The things he prefers about mountain biking are sending big jumps and using chairlifts instead of pedalling. He equally enjoys the club socials and finds it hard to say no to a night out, which has made getting a 1st an elusive prospect. Feel free to message him for any socials related questions.
