Plans to remember cyclist come as police bail a 52-year-old man arrested for dangerous driving

Bath cyclists are joining together for a ride in memory of Jake Gilmore, a teenage rider who died in a hit-and-run last weekend.

Next Saturday morning will see friends, family and concerned cyclists meeting at Kingsmead Square at 10am, before cycling the short distance to Midland Road Bridge, the spot where Jake was killed.

There, they will hold a one minute silence before laying flowers and lighting candles in rememberance of the barman at the Lamb and Lion pub in Lower Borough Walls.

Further details can be found on a Facebook page set up for the ride.

Jake was knocked off his bike a week ago and was found with serious head injuries at around 9.30pm.

The 19-year-old died at the Royal United Hospital the following day.
Following the discovery by police of an abandoned, damaged car at Royal Victoria Park, a 52-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, and has been released on bail pending further inquiries.

After an unpromising start, having to be bribed by her parents to learn to ride without stabilisers, Sarah became rather keener on cycling in her university years, and was eventually persuaded to upgrade to proper road cycling by the prospect of a shiny red Italian bike, which she promptly destroyed by trapping a pair of knickers in the rear derailleur.
