Staff at Keeleys on St. Mary’s Street spoke to Wayne about his routine, diet change, lifestyle and they even posed for photos.

The 48-year-old lost his leg whilst serving as a soldier. He was hit by an 11-ton tank during an exercise on Salisbury Plain in 2001.

Despite his amputation, Wayne stayed in the army for another ten years, earning promotions in that time.

Matthew Mulcrone, Keeleys director, said: “Wayne’s commitment to his cycling is an inspiration to us all.
