Cyclists are being invited to join a charity bike ride in 5 June 2010 that will attempt to visit every football club in Greater London in a day, ending at Wembley Stadium.

Participants can join organiser Thomas Moulton for the entire 142-mile route or for short sections of the ride, dubbed 'KickBallPedalBike'.

The aim of the ride to is raise money and awareness for London Cycling Campaign and the Southall Black Sisters, a charity providing shelter for victims of domestic violence.

Ride organiser Thomas Moulton, a former LCC community cycling officer, said, "150 miles in the free-flowing countryside is difficult enough, but in the city's stop-start streets it's a massive challenge.

22 football grounds in under 24 hours
"We'll attempt to visit all 22 football grounds inside the M25 in one day, from the glamour of the Premier League to the grit of the Blue Square conference.

"For anyone who doesn't know them, the Southall Sisters are amazing, combatting the depressingly prevalent problem of domestic violence, a group that everyone should support regardless of gender or race."

Anyone wants to take part in the ride, or help with organisation, should contact Tom using the form below.
