On 22 July 2012 Bradley Wiggins became the first British cyclist ever to win the Tour de France. In an instant, ‘Wiggo’ became a national hero. Ten days later, having swapped his yellow jersey for the colours of Team GB, he won Olympic gold in the time trial, adding to his previous six medals to become the nation’s most decorated Olympian of all time.

For every child inspired by Bradley Wiggins to leap on his or her bike and ride like the wind across the park, down the street or off to school, here is the story of how their hero made the journey from his first bike to Tour champion and Olympic Gold.
