Gough pedals 300 miles for cricket charity

Former Yorkshire and England pace bowler Darren Gough is taking part in a 300 mile bike ride to raise more than £200,000 for charity.

Gough and his fellow cyclists are pedalling between all five 2005 Ashes venues to mark the 10th anniversary of England's famous 2-1 series win against Australia. The ride started yesterday at Old Trafford, and is taking in Trent Bridge, Edgbaston and Lord's, before finishing at the Oval on Wednesday.

The target is to raise £200,000 for charity. 50% of the money will go to the Lord's Taverners, the official charity for recreational cricket and the UK's leading youth cricket and disability sports charity. The rest of the money will go to local charities nominated by the individual cyclists.

When the team arrived at Edgbaston, Gough spoke to ITV about the cycle ride, and England's victory in the first Test of the current Ashes series at Cardiff.

Over 150 soldiers from the regiment will march through the city to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo.

The parade begins at 11am when soldiers will march into Centenary Square led by the Band of the King's Division.

The soldiers will be in full parade dress uniform and will march with bayonets fixed, band playing and colours flying. The battalion will also have with them the regimental colours, recruiting stands and military vehicles.

The Yorkshire Regiment has had a long connection with Bradford and many of the soldiers in the parade are from the Bradford district.

Tourists can now get a taste of life as a red arrows pilot.

A new ride based on the famous Lincolnshire display team has just opened letting riders experience at least a third of the G-forces that Red One and his team mates face during displays.

The new £2 million white-knuckle attraction is 72 feet high and will take thrill seekers on a 360 degree tour of the skies.
