Sir Chris Hoy has teamed up with Scottish charity Social Bite to help raise £1m for the construction of two purpose-built villages to house people experiencing homelessness – and he wants you to get on your bike and join the campaign.
The Olympic hero is set to lead 1,000 cyclists on a fundraising ride from Glasgow to Edinburgh for the Break The Cycle event, which aims to raise £1 million.
“I have seen the impact of the funds raised and I am passionate about supporting the bold approach to breaking the cycle of homelessness,” said Hoy.
“I know times have been incredibly tough of late but I’d encourage everyone to get involved and help raise the funds needed for this extraordinary project.”

Each participant will be asked to pledge to raise £1,000 before they take on the 60-mile challenge on September 5.
