FRIENDS of a teenage boy who was killed when he was knocked from his bike by a car have arranged an event in his memory.
Dozens of people are expected to gather to remember Sam Brown, 15, who died after he was hit by a car on the B1230 last week.
Friends of the teenager will gather on Gilberdyke playing fields tomorrow to remember a boy who was "always smiling".

"If only. No matter where you are, you're always in my heart, I promise. Hasn't been a day yet that I haven't thought of you and shed a tear, along with a smile about all the memories I've had with you. Love you Samwell, definitely going to make this a big send off for you, you deserve it."
The Facebook group, RIP Sam Brown, has almost 3,000 members.
Sam had been cycling from Howden with his friend Luke to their homes in Gilberdyke when the accident happened on September 6.
The boys were hit by an Audi close to the Rose and Crown pub in Eastrington at 8.50pm.
His fellow pupils at Howden School and Technology College have left written tributes to Sam on a tree in the school grounds.
Another friend, Caitlyn Dinsdale, posted in the Facebook group: "Still can't believe any of this, you were only 15 and had your life taken away from you in a tragic accident.
"Been to see you at least three times, it's so beautiful to look at and just sit and remember you!
"No matter what mood you happened to be in you would do your best to try and cheer everyone up , and oh my did it work. You could light up a whole room with just that cheeky grin of yours!
"I'm so glad I had the privilege of knowing you. It's beautiful to look at the flowers when going past them every day but the reason they're there is awful.
"Knowing I'm not going to seeing you every day is awful. But I'll see you some day! Thoughts are with your family at this horrible time! I love you! Sleep tight gorgeous."
The 67-year-old female driver of the Audi was arrested and later released on bail while police conduct further inquiries.
Anyone who witnessed the accident, or who saw the boys or the Audi between 8pm and 9pm, should call Humberside Police on 101.
