Sir Bradley Wiggins has been honoured with a commemorative blue plaque at Paddington Recreation Ground in London, where the Tour de France and Olympic champion learned to ride a bike.

The plaque was unveiled on Monday on the wall of the park's pavillion building. It joins a plaque dedicated to Sir Roger Bannister, who trained on the park's running track ahead of becoming the first man to run a four-minute mile.

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.
