The grand finale to the 2015 event took place in the Function Suite at Farnell element14 in Leeds and was attended by a large group of riders, supporters, organisers and representatives of the recipient charities of this annual event. The proceedings were hosted by the Event Organiser of the Great Yorkshire Bike Ride, John Taylorson MBE.
