The 37-year-old told reporters said that in the immediate future he would be concentrating on his role as an ambassador for the youth Olympic bid for Glasgow for 2018 and for the Glasgow 24 team games next year.
He said he is also giving his time to Unicef and the Scottish Association for Mental Health and a range of other charities, as well as working on a range of bikes.
