The cyclist who lost his life on Sunday afternoon in an accident on the Marlow Road has been named as Simon Richardson by Cycling Weekly magazine yesterday.
Simon was well-known in the cycling world and was Sales Manager for Endura a cycling clothing and equipment company.
In the article Endura’s founders Jim McFarlane and Pamela Barclay said: “Rest in peace Simon Richardson, beloved and universally respected Endura UK and international sales manager, following a bike accident in Henley on Easter Sunday.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Camilla and his children Emily, Evan and Holly as we all come to terms with this colossal loss. Simon’s contribution is a profoundly important part of what built Endura into what it is today.”
An appeal by Thames Valley Police has been launched. A spokesperson said, “We would like to hear from any witnesses who saw the incident or the cyclist on the Marlow Road prior to it occurring at 2.40pm on Sunday 4 April.
We would also ask drivers in the area at this time to check their dash cams and contact us if they have any relevant footage.
Sergeant Darren Brown of the Serious Collision Investigation Unit based at Three Mile Cross, said: “Our thoughts remain with the man’s family at this difficult time.
“We are investigating the circumstances following this incident and we would like to hear from anyone who saw the incident to please come forward.
“Additionally we would ask drivers in the area at the time to please check their dash-cams and contact us if they have any relevant footage.
