Footie fans on their bikes

Have your say

DO YOU fancy representing the team you support at Wembley? The Football League is calling on all soccer supporters to represent their club in The Football League’s Arch to Arc bike ride.

The ride, from Thursday, June 14, to Sunday, June 17, links two of Europe’s most iconic landmarks.

Fans - including those of Sheffield Wednesday, Sheffield United, Rotherham United, Doncaster Rovers, Barnsley and Chesterfield - will cycle from London’s Wembley Stadium to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris to raise money for Help the Hospices,

Greg Clarke, The Football League chairman, said: “The Arch to Arc bike ride is a chance for loyal fans to make their club proud.

“The money raised along the way will enable hospices to keep caring for 360,000 people each year, including patients and their friends and families.”

The 244-mile journey will take participants through English countryside and French vineyards and villages, before a triumphant finish at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
