For the third Olympics in succession, Britain's first Gold Medal was for cycling. What a FANTASTIC achievement by 25 year-old Nicole Cooke from the Vale of Glamorgan! Relentless rain for 126 kilometres perhaps reminded her of home!

I look forward to cheering her on four years from now on London's own Olympic cycling circuit around Camden - up Albany St, Highgate West Hill and across Whitestone Ponds, when she'll be the reigning Olympic Champion.

To celebrate and join in the rising popularity of cycling in London, why not participate in the hugely enjoyable family cycling event which will see central London closed to motor vehicles for us cyclists for "Freewheel" on Sunday 21st September? Last year, the grins on the faces of the children was a joy to behold.
