Friend of mine riding over bonnet hill today was slowed by police and then saw a bicycle on the side of the road and a body covered with a blanket. I really hope this isn't true.
Ride safe people.

Still nothing in the news, or the mercury website, i hope this wasn't a case of hit and run and rather just an accident. I have heard a description (3rd hand) so i am not going to post it on a public forum, but pm me if you want to.

" In the Mercury this morning, the fellow died of a heart attack, he was 70 years old. Sad news but better than being hit by a car."
