We've had James May, we've had Duffy. Now comedian Dave Gorman and Oscar-grabbing director Danny Boyle are the latest additions to the 'real cyclist' list.
In August, reports Chortle.co.uk, Gorman will be cycling the length of Britain from Lizard Point to Dunnet Head, playing a different venue each night: 1500 miles in 32 days.
Boyle, meanwhile, is quoted in today's Times as saying 'I’ve got no projects planned. But I want to get back on the bicycle.'
