Surrey Police are appealing for the public’s assistance to identify the rider of this bicycle after the cyclist suffered a medical episode earlier today.
Officers are keen to contact his next of kin as he is currently under sedation in hospital.
The rider, a white man with short grey hair, has been taken to hospital by air ambulance after members of the public reported seeing him come off his bike at Newlands Corner shortly before 1.15pm this afternoon.
Officers closed the road while emergency services were in attendance, but the road has since reopened.
Sergeant Andy Audsley, of Surrey Police’s Roads Policing Unit, said:
“If you know the rider of this bicycle, please call.
“We need to contact the rider’s family as we are sure they will be worrying about him.”
The bike is described as a green and yellow Carrera Crixus, with drop handlebars and a pannier frame over the rear wheel.
If you can help Surrey Police to identify this man, please call 101, quoting reference PR/P19149987.
