Club Run to the Coast
Three EGCC riders rode out to Dukes Head, Copthorne to meet up with Oxted CC on their annual ride to the coast over closed roads on London – Brighton route.
Breakfast taken at Hove on the beach. The return back over Devil’s Dyke was marred by a serious crash for Sam Cottingham who came down heavily when his front tyre punctured. He had severe lacerations to right leg and elbow and a suspected broken right collarbone.
An ambulance was called to take him to hospital. The ride was undertaken in near perfect weather and a distance of 68 miles covered. EGCC extend best wishes to Sam for a speedy recovery and many thanks to Oxted CC for the invitation to ride with them.
Here’s to many more joint ventures between the clubs.
