Midweek ride Today – 15th August 2018

A message from Bob Drake

I will start this weeks report with a brief resume of last weeks unreported ride. On the return ride last week whilst waiting to regroup in Bulphan one of our members Peter C suffered a very serious cardiac arrest and was rendered unconscious. Club members, I won’t name names you know who you are, quickly rendered CPR assistance and continued this until emergency services arrived. Peter was eventually removed to Basildon hospital where he received emergency surgery and other important treatment. We are pleased to report he is making slow progress to what will hopefully be a full recovery in the not too distant future.

Today a large turnout left Orsett to rendezvous at Puddledock where even more members arrived by car and Peter’s family attended to express their gratitude for everything the group had done and achieved for Peter. I have to say it is in times of adversity that the very best is seen in people all around and I for one am proud to be associated with them.
