The event at Scammonden Reservior will now be known as The Daz Speight Memorial Hill Climb, in memory of much-missed 3RT Cycling member Darren Speight.
Mr Speight, a father-of-two from Elland, died in hospital following an accident on Lower Edge Road in August.
He was almost home from a training ride when his bike and a motorbike were involved in a collision.
His friends and loved ones will celebrate his life at this year’s event, which takes place on Sunday September 15, and are inviting even non-cyclists to attend and watch.
Chris Iredale, a close friend of Mr Speight, said the club hope the ride and other events will raise money for a trust fund for Mr Speight’s young daughters, Mia and Millie.
Tributes have flooded in for the popular 43-year-old, who was a self-employed flooring contractor, and an online fundraising page has already collected over £22,000.
