Dame Kelly Holmes passes her CBT

Royally honoured double-Olympic gold athlete turned role model and thought leader heads to a wet car park, like the rest of us did

DAME Kelly Holmes was spotted at the NEC bike show, Motorcycle Live, yesterday.

The former athlete has just passed her CBT with the Get On campaign, where anyone can sign up for a free one-hour motorcycle taster session.

Dame Kelly joins a list of 'celebrities' who have taken their first steps onto two wheels via the Get On campaign, an industry-backed initiative to get more people onto two wheels. Other personalities who've now passed their motorcycle test thanks to Get On include Darren Gough, Gethin Jones, Jill Halfpenny, Danny John Jules, Shobna Gulati, Lee from Blue and Adrian Chiles.

It's hoped that the influence of these celebrities will encourage more people to try life on two wheels.
