Bradley Wiggins was all smiles in Carlisle before he set off.
Olympic gold medallist and Tour de France Champion Bradley Wiggins will be cycling through Cumbria when the Tour of Britain comes to the county next month.
He's expected to be a huge draw for spectators on September 12 when stage 4 kicks off from the Old Town Hall in Carlisle. The Scottish leg from Jedburgh to Dumfries takes place the day before. It's hoped his appearance in Carlisle will encourage a new generation of young cyclists.
