Full Gas Cycling was founded in 2014 by TONY GIBB, former UK No. 1 ranked rider, multiple National Champion, World Championship Silver and Commonwealth Games Bronze medalist, Multiple World Cup medallist and more recently World Masters champion.
Tony regularly appears on Eurosport as a key member of it’s International Commentary team.
Events & Logistics Director PIPPA LEITH manages the day-to-day operations for Full Gas Cycling. She also assists with a number of high-profile events, including the Tour of Britain, Womens' Tour, Six Day London, UCI World Masters Track Cycling Championships, Elite World Track Championships and Track World Cup. Outside of her racing committments she runs a Sports & Remedial Massage Therapy business based in London's Covent Garden.
By promoting brand new events and resurrecting iconic ones, we aim to create more accessible and affordable opportunities for cyclists to experience the joy of racing - whether they are newcomers to the sport wanting to start from the beginning, or experienced competitors wanting to grow and develop their skills and work their way towards Elite racing status and beyond.
We organise over 100 races per year which, at 8 pins per rider, per race, equates to a lot of safety pins! We don't provide these free of charge but instead ask our participants to make a cash donation.
All of the money raised in this way is given to London's Air Ambulance, a registered charity which relies almost entirely on public donations. They provide an invaluable and life-saving service and many cyclists - both on and off the road - have received care from them.
