And in sports news...

Well... this week has been Team Green Britain Bike Week, and if that's passed you by so far, fear not - for what a weekend of cycling you have ahead of you!!  We have Bradley Wiggins, Geraint Thomas, Mark Cavendish, Nicole Cooke, Emma Pooley.... to name but a few of the stars who'll be hitting the region on their bikes this weekend for the National Elite Road Race Championships.

A huge Well Done! to Peter Harrison and the Gosforth Road Cycling Club for attracting one of the biggest events in the UK cycling calendar to our region. 

As well as the Nationals, there's the Leazes Criterium Races happening right now in Leazes Park, as I write, and the Northern Rock Cyclone takes place tomorrow.  Check out the Cyclone website for details of all of these events: http://www.northernrockcyclone.co.uk

I'm gonna have a rest from potting this Sunday and head off to join the rest of the marshalls who are taking part in the event organisation for the National Road Race Champs.  Can't wait!!



This is going to be a great weekend of cycling, you'd be mad not to come down to watch at least one of the events.

Hope to see you there!

Good luck to all involved!
