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.”

East Ham MP Stephen Timms is due to send the riders off at 1pm for the ride which is organised and led by Newham Cyclists.

Previous rides have drawn a number of councillors and MPs.

The organisers said the free ride is ideal for family, friends and neighbours who just want to enjoy and it is open to anyone who can ride a bike. It is also free to hire a bike.

Riders are due to gather at 10.30am at the Bobby Moore statue in Barking Road and set off at 1pm.
