The New Forest Cycling Club


Geoff Smith

I’ve had the following information from Bob Jolliffe, many of the long term members or older riders will remember Geoff racing as well as being involved in club organisation.

Former long-term New Forest CC secretary Geoff Smith is in Southampton General Hospital with a broken leg after falling from his bike on the A337 at Downton on Friday.

A club life member, Geoff, who is in his late 80s and lives at Everton, turned to go back about a half mile to retrieve his saddlebag which had somehow become detached and fallen into the road.

He got to the bag, turned and stopped safely putting his left foot on the verge. But he had difficulty in unclipping his right foot and fell into the road breaking his right femur, said his grandson Mitchell.

Geoff is expected to undergo an operation to set the bone today, Sunday, November 4.

He is expected to make a full and speedy recovery.
