Many people might not have thought of putting on some cycling clothing
and taking to the saddle, but could be inspired by a pre-Olympic event passing through the Peak District to mark 100 days until the event starts.
The national park authority has suggested people may realise what facilities there are for cyclists as ten cyclists carrying models of the Olympic torch complete their three-day relay, which ends today (Friday May 20th).
One of the places on the riders' itinerary is the Monsal Trail, one of the most popular cycling routes in Britain as it passes along an old railway line.
Peak National Park Authority chief executive Jim Dixon called the event "a great opportunity to promote the fantastic off-road cycling routes that young people and adults have on their doorstep in the Peak District National Park".
He suggested "the best legacy" of the Olympics will be to inspire young people to cycle regularly.
Last year saw the Monsal Trail being re-routed to enable cyclists to pass through the old railway tunnels, which had been closed off when the old Midland Railway Line was closed in 1968.
