Sheffield councillor aged 83 gets back on his bike after painful crash
A Sheffield councillor is back in the saddle training for a 365 mile challenge just two weeks after a painful crash.
Coun Peter Price, aged 83, was cycling back from his daughter's in Barnsley on the Trans Pennine Trail when he hit a fallen branch in Stairfoot Wood.
The collision threw him over the handlebars leaving him with a badly cut and grazed leg, knee, thigh and shoulder as well as a damaged rotator cuff. He cycled eight miles home with blood dripping down his arm.
But Sheffield’s longest serving councillor, who represents Shiregreen and Brightside, is already back in the saddle.
He said he had made an ‘excellent recovery’ and is back in training for a 356 mile Cycle Challenge when he undertakes the Tour de Brittany in France in September raising sponsorship for the Macmillan Cancer Appeal.
