Saeed Mumtaz

Unfortunately I have some very sad news about one of our club members, Saeed Mumtaz, who has been a regular rider with the intro group over the past few months.

At the very end of the intro ride yesterday, and going very slowly on the approach to Milford Station carpark, Saeed fell off his bike. He was immediately found to be unconscious by the riders with him, so emergency services were called. CPR was administered by our riders and by a bystander who happened to be a trained lifeguard. Paramedics arrived on the scene and attempted to resuscitate but sadly their attempts were unsuccessful.

Saeed’s family were informed by police yesterday.

I wanted to send information out about this event as soon as possible, as clarification. However, at this point the exact cause of Saeed’s death is still unclear.

We will of course keep you informed of any further information relating to the accident, and also of funeral arrangements when we receive them, should any of you wish to attend. We will be sending a message of sympathy to Saeed’s family on behalf of VCGH in the next couple of days.

Please come back to me on captain@vcgh.co.uk if you have any questions or comments, and if you would like to add any personal messages to the card we will send to the family.

All the best,
Lara
