He suffered severe head injuries and had to be airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary where he remains critically ill.
John, chairman of Huddersfield and District Cyclists’ Touring Club (CTC), works tirelessly to promote cycling locally and nationally.
He also organised the cycling section of the Examiner’s Charity Challenge.
A week on from the accident, friends and family of dad-of-two John will take part in a six-mile ride to show their support and help raise cash for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, which flew him to hospital.
The ride will start at St George’s Square in Huddersfield at 6pm tomorrow finishing in New Mill. A collection will be made for the air ambulance.
John was in collision with a Vauxhall Corsa in Huddersfield Road, New Mill, last Wednesday afternoon.
He was out on a ‘warm down’ ride having taken part in the gruelling London-Edinburgh-London cycle ride.
He had cycled 300 miles to Barnard Castle near Darlington when he was forced to give up the challenge.
