Coronation Street and Emmerdale Stars Set Off on Tour de ITV

Hobby comper, TV lover and geek with a passion for motorcycles. I've a background in print and am a self-taught webmaster. I mainly look after the website, adding competitions/quizzes and managing the news.

Coronation Street and Emmerdale stars are cycling 60 miles across the Pennines from the Rovers Return to the Woolpack as part of the Tour de ITV cycling event which will help raise money for two charities. The two charities are  Join In, an Olympic and Paralympic legacy charity which puts more volunteers into sport, and Marie Curie Cancer Care.
