Bike to School... Win Gold Medal at Olympics!
Nicole Cooke, Olympic Champion
All this biking stuff we constantly write about isn't only good for your health and for the environment, it can also pay off! UK gold medal winner Nicole Cooke shared her cycling history with the Telegraph, and not surprisingly, she started young:
"Britain's Olympic cycling champion Nicole Cooke began honing her fitness from the age of 11 when she would race her father twice daily on the seven-mile trip to and from school. The young Miss Cooke and her father shunned the bus to dash from their home to school." Via Cyclelicious
