Sir Chris Hoy to get people cycling

As a comeback from injury, Sir Chris is going to do a 'Pedal Power' sponsored cycle ride from John O'Groats to Land's End and in conjunction with the supermarket chain Asda, fund community based cycling projects. With Chris Hoy having such a high profile, this is bound to have a positive impact even for recreational cycling in the UK. The other good thing about it is the funds will be distributed by the Bike Club Consortium led by the CTC, whose balanced view also includes sharing the road as well as alternative route provision.
