World record holder checks in at Anfield on inspirational bike ride

The Premier League and Euro 2020 Cycling Tour, a 1,000-mile ride raising awareness of modern slavery and child trafficking in sport, checked in at Anfield last weekend.

Led by Guinness World Record holder Gordon Miller, the event includes visits to each of the 20 Premier League teams between June 27 and July 11, culminating at Wembley to coincide with the Euro 2020 final.

LFC Foundation CEO Matt Parish was at the Reds’ stadium on Saturday to meet Miller and offer support and encouragement for the subsequent stages of the ride.

There are more than 40 million people in some form of slavery on any given day worldwide, according to the Global Slavery Index.
