Former Newcastle United footballer Robbie Elliot and his coach Phil Gray are expected in Northumberland this morning to encourage cyclists to take part in a sponsored bike ride.
The pair were due to arrive back in the region last night after taking part in a 3,500-mile cycle from Lisbon, in Portugal to Newcastle to raise money for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation. Instead of resting though, Robbie and Phil will be inspiring more than 500 cyclists on their own 33-mile trip.
Cycle Sportive will begin at 10am at Ponteland High School, in Newcastle.
