Home » Pot hole dismounts bike safety campaigner
November 25th, 2014
A well known bike safety campaigner says his helmet saved him from a potential head injury when his bike hit a pothole.
The campaigner was unable to attend a charity event when he became a victim of a cycle accident after coming off his bike after hitting a pot hole. He was assessed by ambulance staff who then took him to A&E for further treatment. He sustained cuts and bruises, but luckily no head injury, which he claims is down to him wearing a helmet.
He said: “I am not able to attend tonight because of that cycle injury, but I’m able to talk to you today because I wore a helmet.”
The man became an active campaigner for bike safety after his 17 year old son was left in a coma after coming off his bike following a collision with a van, 15 months ago. His son was not wearing a helmet at the time and feels strongly that a helmet may have prevented the brain injury. Since the accident, the bike safety campaigner has been visiting schools and giving educational talks.
