The opening of a cycling and triathlon club’s new clubhouse was overshadowed yesterday in Great Britain when three of its riders were injured, one seriously, on a commemorative ride to celebrate the event.
Two dozen members of West Suffolk Wheelers and Triathlon Club, which traces its origins back to 1922, had been marking the club’s move to its new clubhouse in Bury St Edmunds.
However, three of the riders were brought down in a collision as the group of riders passed through the village of Little Saxham shortly before noon. With one of the cyclists suffering serious head injuries, emergency services, including the air ambulance, were summoned to the scene.
