Steve Worland Dies of Heart Attack

by 90


One of the longest serving UK bike journalists and Singletrack bike tester, Steve Worland (58) has died of a heart attack while out running on Saturday 29th March.

Steve began writing for MBUK in the early 90’s and built a solid reputation for his expert opinions and technical knowledge. Steve wrote regularly for Singletrack including taking over as lead bike tester a year ago. Steve leaves his partner Jo and daughter Holly. Steve and Jo were due to get married in early April to celebrate 25 years together.

Steve’s last feature for us was the 26 Is Not Dead bike test in Singletrack issue 88. We interviewed Steve for Issue 10.

We are all shocked by his death and the thoughts of everyone at Singletrack are with his friends and family.

What Mark doesn’t know about social media isn’t worth knowing and his ability to balance “The Stack” is bested only by his agility on a snowboard. Graphs are what gets his engine revving, at least they would if his car wasn’t electric, and data is what you’ll find him poring over in the office. Mark enjoys good whisky, sci-fi and the latest Apple gadget, he is also the best boss in the world (Yes, he is paying me to write this).
