Brook turns on the pedal power

Kelly Brook has proved she can crank up the style even on a bike by getting in the saddle with six-inch stilettos and a mini dress.

The model seemed only a little cautious as she showed off her unusual cycle-wear in front of a crowd of journalists alongside London Mayor Boris Johnson.

But the heels proved their use for stopping on the soft lawn outside City Hall in London.

Brook, who recently declared she was having a naked month in August, turned out in a pretty floral frock to promote the second London Sky Ride taking place this Sunday.

Many of London's roads will be traffic-free between 9.30am and 4.30pm to enable free access for cyclists to ride straight past many of London's famous landmarks.

Brook said: "It's brilliant. I did it last year, it's for all ages, all abilities and it's such a lovely day out.

"It's very social and even if you're not a keen cyclist it's just a great day for family and friends."

Mr Johnson said: "London is in the midst of a two wheeled revolution and Sky Ride promises to add to our aim of making the capital the epicentre of pedal power. Being able to cycle on traffic free streets past some of the world's most iconic sights is sheer bliss for anyone with a love of our great city or the bicycle."

This year's 15km circular route includes more of the capital's attractions, taking cyclists through Parliament Square as well as Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London.

Sky Ride ambassador Olympic gold medal winner Sir Chris Hoy added: "It's always something extra special experiencing one of the world's most exciting cities in a unique traffic-free environment and I hope to see even more people coming down on September 5."
