Bike from Boleyn chairman Gerard Bailey said: "Football clubs have historically been at the heart of working class communities and it is vital that the link is maintained.

"We have fans coming from as far away as Cambridge and Oxford who welcome the chance to come back to the area that was home to the Hammers for 112 years and travel to the match in the most convenient, quickest way; by bike."

Meet at the Champions Statue, at the junction of Green Street and Barking Road, at 11am.
