Former Super Eagles goalkeeper Carl Ikeme will join over 17,000 cyclists to raise funds for charity as he has signed to take part in the second edition of Velo Birmingham and Midlands cycling event.
Ikeme who is happy to be alive after a long battle with Leukaemia will take part in the 100-mile and 42-mile event on May 12.
“Soo… I signed up to do the 100-mile @velobirmingham bike ride event this Sunday. I will be riding with the doctors and nurses from ward 19 heartlands where I’m still currently getting treated,” he posted Instagram.
“Our aim is to improve the facilities to help patients get treated, with isolation units and @dkms_uk harvesting unit also. I will put the link in my bio if any of you would be so kind to donate! Let’s see how it goes #charity.”
They will be cycling around Birmingham, Coventry, Solihull, and North Warwickshire.
