Hundreds of cyclists are expected to get on their bikes this weekend to pay tribute to a Huddersfield man.
They will be taking on a 100-mile cycle challenge in memory of John Radford, of Meltham, and raising money for the charity he backed - Road Justice.
Mr Radford, 70, suffered serious head injuries when he came off his bike on the A616 between New Mill and Brockholes, two years ago this week on July 31, 2013. He was involved in a clash with a motorist, Michael Gledhill, who has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving.
Mr Radford was a former chairman of cycling charity Huddersfield Cyclists Touring Club and died in November last year.
There have already been a number of tribute rides but on Sunday a large turnout is expected at Fairburn, near Castleford.
They will be riding a route devised by Mr Radford some years ago.
Clr Martyn Bolt, a keen cyclist and a family friend, said: “John came up with a number of rides and this was one of them.
“There are two rides, adding up to 100 miles. The first ride, of 58miles, starts at 8am from Fairburn Hall and heads out around Goole and back.
“The second ride is one of about 42 miles and will again be from Fairburn and back; the roads are there are much flatter and he devised the runs for cyclists aged 50 and over.
“Riders will set off in groups of about 10 from 8 am onwards, faster riders starting first. All groups will have a leader and a back up rider.
“The ride has very few hills, so it makes a welcome change from West Yorkshire riding!
“We hope there will be a large turnout of riders and certainly some of the CTC members who are training for a ride to France are expected to be there.
“They will also be taking donations for the Road Justice campaign, which John supported to get better protection for cyclists on our roads”.
