Hunt continues for missing cyclist in Northern Ireland

Samuel Campbell

Concern is growing over the whereabouts of a cyclist who failed to return from a ride on New Year's Day in Northern Ireland, as police reconstructed his ride on Monday.

Samuel Campbell, 49, left his home in Kells, County Antrim, at around 2pm on January 1 to go on a regular training ride. His wife raised the alarm after he failed to return home. His bike was found two days later on a beach at Glenarm, but there was no sign of Campbell and no clue to his whereabouts.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
