“We would like to invite anyone who felt a connection to Mike to come and remember him in good company,” read a statement on the former World Cycle Race, TransAm and Tour Divide winner’s website. “There will be an opportunity to say a few words about him and share some stories over a jar or two.”

Attendees are encouraged to arrive by bike as a celebration of Hall’s passion for all things two-wheeled.

“There will be room to store bikes, at the owner’s risk, at the Pavilion, and the wearing of lycra is encouraged…but please dress in any way you see fit to honour Mike,” reads Hall’s website.

For those unable to make it to Yorkshire, a second event will also be held in mid-Wales, most likely in early June.
