Bradley Wiggins's latest career departure is a more sedate one than his many sporting exertions

The Tour de France winner, who is married to a Shevington lass and a staunch Wigan Warriors supporter, will share stories from his illustrious career, organisers said, in what is described as "a unique and intimate live setting".

Beginning in September and ending in October, the 13-date Bradley Wiggins: An Evening With tour will stop at venues including Hull's City Hall, Newcastle's Tyne Theatre And Opera House and Wimbledon's New Theatre.

Sir Bradley, affectionately known to fans as Wiggo, is one of the most decorated athletes in British sporting history.

He has five Olympic gold medals and in 2012 made history in becoming the first cyclist to win a gold medal and the Tour de France in the same year.

Sir Bradley was named BBC Sports Personality Of The Year later that year and was knighted in the 2013 New Year's Honours for services to cycling.

After one of the most remarkable careers in British sport, Sir Bradley retired from competitive cycling in December 2016.

Tickets for Bradley Wiggins: An Evening With are on sale May 17 at 10am. For more information, visit
