The Olympian admitted that the "Lycra and sparkles" associated with the BBC One dancing series did not appeal to him at all.
Speaking ahead of series four of the winter sports programme, the 36-year-old spoke about his upcoming appearance while playing down the possibility of a serious injury.
Sir Bradley, who retired from professional cycling in December, commented: "Strictly Come Dancing and all that asked, but this is the only one I would do."
The star continued: "I definitely don’t fancy putting on any Strictly Lycra and sparkles. People go skiing and hurt themselves all the time."

Sir Bradley went on to say that it was the lure of fellow sports stars signing up that convinced him to do it, during an interview with The Sun.
When asked about the likes of Louis Smith, Kadeena Cox and Jade Jones, he revealed: "That was a deciding factor for me to come on the show in the first place.
"When I saw who else was coming on it, I could see there are some high-class sportspeople who have achieved so much, so that was definitely a factor."
