The life of Birmingham Olympic cyclist Tommy Godwin will be remembered at a special service in Knowle.
Popular Tommy, who won two bronze medals in the 1948 London Olympics, died two weeks ago at the age of 91.
While competing he worked at the Perry Barr cycle makers BSA and later ran his own bike shop in Kings Heath.
He was also a founder of the Birmingham Road Cycling Club and keen backer of cycling in the Midlands. He attended hundreds of cycling events and supported dozens of organisations.
This summer saw him return to the Olympics carrying the torch through Solihull, before watching a triumphant British team at the Velodrome in London.
The Midlands cycling community is expected to be out in force to pay tribute to Tommy at the service, at Knowle Parish Church, High Street, Knowle from 2pm on Tuesday November 20.
