Local charity and football supporters' club, Punjabi Wolves, are today beginning a bike ride from the Molineux Stadium to Paris, to celebrate 150 years of the 'Football Association'.

Twenty cyclists – and a Punjabi rickshaw with a life size cut-out of Wolves legend Billy Wright – are taking part in the 430 mile trip to the Eiffel Tower, where the group will be treated to a Champagne Reception.

The group will be carrying banners supporting the armed forces and a logo on their kit paying tribute to Drummer Lee Rigby who was killed in Woolwich last month.
