The seventh edition of Ride for Joe will see cyclists and enthusiasts from across the region getting together to honour Joe Guy, who died in 2017 after being hit by a van while out riding.
The 16-year-old was training to become a professional time trial rider and the event on Sunday will be a way of honouring his memory, as well as raising funds for the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.
The event, which starts at 10am, will see riders take on either the 30-mile or 50-mile courses, which start and finish at Aldersley Stadium. The event will include members of Wolverhampton Wheelers, for whom Joe was a member, as well as members of his family.
Organiser John Ireson said the event showed the spirit of the cycling community.
He said: “When Joe died, it touched a lot of people, particularly within the cycling community as it is such a close-knit community.
“We said after the first event that we wanted to make sure that this was going to leave a legacy and we all knew Joe really well, particularly for me as chairman and coach.
“I would say to anyone thinking about it to come along and give it a try as it’s not a race, it’s about raising money and we want it to be fun for people.”
Entries cost £10 and can be booked on the day or by going to britishcycling.org.uk/events/details/277589/Ride-for-Joe-2023.
