Have you got a few hours to spare this Thursday (May 5)? Can you get to London with your bike? If so, head to London Zoo for midday and you can ride with the legendary Mario Cipollini.
The Italian, who won 42 stages of the Giro d'Italia in his remarkable career, will be joined by 2008 world champion Alessandro Ballan and two-time Giro winner Paolo Savoldelli for the BIKE Channel's #RideWithLegends ride out.
The three former pros will be departing from the Zoo gates at midday for an hour's ride around London, before heading for a coffee at the Inner Circle Cafe.
Even if you can't get out on the ride, but work near Regent's Park, you can pop along to the zoo gates to get a glimpse of The Lion himself and maybe even grab a few words with the riders.
