Cycle ride celebrates life of Leeds boy

The event was in memory of Lewis Barry, 15, who cycled for Yorkshire

About 200 people joined a bike ride through Leeds to celebrate the life of a talented teenage cyclist.

Lewis Barry, 15, who cycled for Yorkshire, died in his sleep last week. The cause of death is not yet known.

Mourners cycled from Roundhay Park to Rawdon for his funeral on Tuesday afternoon.

Lewis was a pupil at Garforth Community College and had been cycling seriously since he was 11 years old.

The teenager, who was expected to ride for Great Britain when he was older, was a member of the Aire Valley Race Team.

His father Mark took part in the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles and his mother Carol is a former national cycling champion.
