Former Barnsley star leads cyclists in charity ride

A group of former footballers have swapped the beautiful game for a beautiful cycle ride, in the hope of raising a million pounds for charity.

It is the first of two fundraising events organised by former Barnsley player Geoff Thomas.

He nearly lost his life to Leukaemia and now wants to help others with the condition, by raising money for medical research.

This summer, he will be riding the Tour de France event, one day ahead of the professionals.

To warm up, he is cycling from London to Paris, and set off this morning.

He was joined by more than 200 cyclists, including some other players from Yorkshire.
