The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) and its partners have made a significant investment to ensure London 2012 is a sustainable transport Games, and are encouraging people to emulate their track and road heroes by doing their own ‘victory ride’ as they get to and from events.
Joanna Rowsell, who won Gold in the team pursuit alongside Dani King and Laura Trott, said:
“Cycling is a fantastic way of keeping fit, regardless of age or ability. With spaces for more than 7,000 bikes, guided rides and free repairs, there’s every reason to get out there and start pedalling. There are a number of excellent routes that have been put in place for the Games and afterwards. We should all cross our fingers that the weather holds out, although I’d definitely recommend packing a poncho just in case. After all, this is Britain!”
