Dave Lloyd (born 12 October 1949),[1] is an English former professional cyclist.

Lloyd began racing in 1969 and came seventh in the Milk Race and rode in the 1972 Munich Olympics. In 1973 he turned professional with Raleigh, and over the next three years he won the national 5000m pursuit championship twice and set a national 50-mile road record. In 1976 a heart condition forced a three-year break from cycling. On recovery he restarted as an amateur and over six years won 125 of 133 races. In 1982 he won the Points, King of the Mountains and Overall in the Girvan 3-Day beating a strong field of riders that included Paul Curran, Joey McLoughlin and Jeff Williams.[2] In 1984 he returned to the professional sport, and finally retired from cycling two years later.

Lloyd was a framebuilder for 13 years. Living in south Wirral, he is now a cycling coach and is behind The Dave Lloyd Mega Challenge. In September 2009 he planned to return to amateur road racing by entering the Derby Mercury road race. Unfortunately one of his athletes had also entered the race, and so decided that he does not want to enter into conflict.
