Today's Sky Ride in Leeds was used as a vehicle to raise awareness about prostate cancer.

A group from the city's Black Health Initiative got on their bikes to encourage men to talk about the disease. Black men are three times more likely to develop prostate cancer than white men - and at a younger age.

Calendar spoke to Robert Smith, one of the men riding on behalf of the Black Health Initiative.
