Stoke keeper Sorensen to mark retirement with epic US cycle ride

Sorensen has only made one appearance for Stoke this season
Thomas Sorensen will exchange his boots for cycling cleats.

Veteran goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen has announced that he's calling it a day at the end of the current season and retiring after 22 long years in the saddle.

Currently entering into the final few months of his ever-dwindling Stoke City contract, the 38-year-old Danish stopper has vowed to mark his retirement by "giving something back" -- duly announcing that he plans to cycle some 4,000 miles across the United States in the summer all in the name of charity.

Indeed, Sorensen tweeted the details of his epic bike trek, which will see the former Denmark international pedalling his way across North American from southern Maine to Oregon's Pacific coast.

Amazing and we wish Thomas the very best of luck, though we'd make doubly sure we'd packed our talcum powder if we were him. Saddle sores can be a nightmare.
