Cyclists across the UK are being urged to log every journey they make over the next few months on the Love to Ride app as the organisers of the Glasgow World Championships seek to hit their target of 23 million miles by the time the event kicks off in August.

The mega-worlds - which will consist of 13 different disciplines across road, track, BMXing, mountain biking and more - is 100 days away, which is why its organisers launched the 23 million miles campaign on Tuesday.
