64 years ago, Tommy Godwin, 92, earned a medal at the 1948 London games. Yesterday, one of the oldest surviving Olympians launched Bike Week (June 16-24) with the All Party Parliamentary Cycling Group in tow riding from the London Transport Museum to the House of Lords (they’re always leading by example aren’t they?). To encourage the public to jump on the humble two-wheeler, Samsung are donating £1 to charity for every mile you cycle during bike week through their free app. Bike Week kicks off on Saturday June 16 so with events around the capital including races, cycle safety sessions and more.
