Organisers of the second Community Tour of Wetherby have declared the event a huge success.
Dean Buckle of the Bike Shack rode on the back of the popularity of the Tour de France when he started the first event last year.
And in its second year about 50 cyclists defied the wind and rain and completed the routes around the town.
A spokesman said: “The Community Tour of Wetherby was a great success.
“Despite the horrible weather on Sunday May 31 about 50 bike riders completed the route.
“They raised £500 for the Old Men’s Parliament (OMP) and Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA).”
John Trower, Les Brown and Ian Leadley of the OMP and Jane Boylan from the YAA were at the start to provide encouragement.
“Any event needs helpers and sponsors and the Community Tour of Wetherby and Dean would like to thank all of the people involved for making the bike ride such a success.”
