Ex-England footballer Geoff Thomas to ride 2015 Tour de France route for charity

Former Crystal Palace player Geoff Thomas has announced a charity cycle on the 2015 Tour de France course.

Ex-England footballer Geoff Thomas, who famously rode the entire 2005 Tour de France route just months after finishing treatment for cancer, is planning to ride the 2015 course to mark the ten year anniversary of his cycle.

He will join a team of 20 other amateur riders just one day ahead of the main event on July 3, in a bid to raise £1 million for Cure Leukaemia.
