Today I was sent an email about a mountain biker who crashed recently. Does anyone know Martin?
Hi there from South Wales.
Are you able to help us identify a mountain biker who lives in Stoke Fleming?
We were walking from SF to Blackpool Sands via Mill Lane last Saturday (14th Oct) when we found Martin & his mate. Martin had gone over the handle bars of his mountain bike & had injured his side, ribs & possibly his back.
We went to the main road to guide the ambulance & then helped the paramedics get the trolley bed up the muddy hill & then helped carry him back to the ambulance. He was in a lot of pain.
His mate had called his wife from Dartmouth who was there, but we didn’t get their names!
We heard Martin say he lived in Venn Lane SF & had been a mountain bike guide in Spain at some time.
We just wanted to find out how he was & that we hope he isn’t too badly injured etc. The ambulance crew said they were taking him to Torbay hospital.
We visit SF a few times each year as a relative has a house in West Park.
