A bike ride aimed at keeping links to West Ham’s old ground alive is due to take place.
Cyclists will take to the route from the Hammers' old Boleyn ground in Upton Park to their new home at the London Stadium on May 4.
Chairman of Bike from Boleyn, Gerard Bailey, said: “West Ham may have made a physical move, but for as long as we have pedal power, the legacy of the Boleyn as our spiritual home will never fade and die.”
