Chair of the CTC York Cycle Show Committee,
Cyclists will be able to head over to the Nokia Bike Week pavilion, chill out on comfy sofas to recharge themselves and their phones or try out their biking skills against double Olympic gold medallist, James Cracknell, to be in the running to win a new top of the range bike. Roaming Personal Navigators will be out chatting to people about cycling and handing out scratch cards to win plenty of goodies, including top of the range GPS enabled phones, kit bags, accessories and plenty more.
