Dear Members and friends

 

As some of you may be aware already, a recent member to our club, Les Haines, suffered a very serious fall from his bike on the Allensmore 10 circuit on Thursday, July 5th.  Several of us were on scene prior to the Ambulance Service arrival and they made the decision to airlift Les to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

Very sadly we have heard that Les passed away in the early hours of Tuesday morning, 17th July, and we send our deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to his partner, Nicky and his daughter Paula and her family.

Les joined our club in early April of this year and I know that many of you having met and ridden with him, especially on the Wednesday Wheelers ride to Jules at Weobley, and Friday morning Wheelers rides to Ewyas Harold and had enjoyed his company riding along or chatting at the coffee stops.

I know that Les was always an outdoor enthusiast enjoying walking mountains and more recently cycling, being a member of several cycling clubs as well as our own and I am very sorry to have to pass on such sad news.
