Default Cyclist arrested on suspicion of being drunk

Who else here drinks to excess? Hmmm.

http://www.bognor.co.uk/news/cyclist...ntre-1-3701872

A BOGNOR Regis cyclist has been bailed by police until May 18 after a
pensioner suffered a broken hip in a collision.

The 52-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of being drunk in charge of a
pedal cycle and grevious bodily harm.

He was released while detectives make further inquiries into the accident
with a woman, aged 72, also from Bognor.

It happened in Sudley Road, Bognor, about 2pm on Wednesday, April 4.

A member of the public saw the collision and alerted the emergency services
while following the cyclist into nearby Hotham Park and returning him to the
scene until the police arrived.

A Sussex Police spokeswoman said: "This was an unfortunate incident for the
elderly woman - who has suffered a painful fracture - but, thankfully,
remains in a stable condition.

"I would like to thank the member of the public who helped the injured woman
and showed great initiative by following the cyclist into a nearby park and
persuading him to return to the scene.

"We would like to hear from anyone else who witnessed the incident or saw a
man wearing a black jacket and riding a bicycle along Sudley Road shortly
before the collision."

They should call 101 and quote serial 789 of 4/4.

Default Whisky Trail, a new sportive for Scotland

QUOTE:

Midsummer weekend is a busy time for cycling events, and if you're
anywhere near Elgin it just got a bit busier with a new sportive, the
Whisky Trail, rolling out from the Moray town on 24 June for a ride
past some famous distilleries. Moray is home to over half of
Scotland's whisky producers and the rides will roll past world famous
malt whisky names such as Glenfiddich, Glenlivet and The Macallan.

There's 40 and 80 mile options, as well as a family ride of 10 miles
and the event is rasing funds for North East Sensory Services, a
charity that provides advice and support to over 3000 people with
sight loss, hearing loss and the Deaf community in the Grampian area.

David Lang of Maximise Sport, toe organisers, said, "The Whisky Trail
Sportive has all the elements necessary to deliver an
outstanding sportive - great roads, magnificent scenery and an
exceptional route, following parts of the renowned Malt Whisky Trail
all contribute to create an event with outstanding potential." When
pressed to confirm or deny whether there'd be whisky tasting at the
feed stops we were disappointed to learn that drams are not included
in your 35 entry fee. All the susual stuff is though: electronic
timing, feed stations, goody bag and comprehensive signing. There's
also showering and changing facilities at Elgin FC.

So he ran away?

Surely nobody would be that drunk at 2pm? Unless they had a skinful the
night before?
