Following an investigation by Thames Valley Police, a cyclist has been convicted of riding a without reasonable consideration in Windsor.
Iain Plumb, aged 32, of Chaucer Road, Crowthorne, was found guilty of one count of riding a cycle on a road without reasonable consideration for others, after a trial at Wycombe Magistrates’ Court on Monday (21/1).
Plumb was voluntarily interviewed on 10 October and charged with the offence on 20 October.
The court ordered Plumb to pay total costs of £926.
Investigating officer, PC Peter Dorling of the Investigation Hub, said:
“This conviction relates to an incident at Windsor Triathlon on 17 June last year.
“Plumb was competing in the event, when he attempted to undertake a horse and horse rider in Oakley Green Road, Dedworth.
“While attempting this maneouvre, Plumb cycled into the horse, causing it to bolt, and thus putting other road users in danger.
“The horse rider, a 29-year-old woman, sustained bruising to her ankle, and thankfully the horse was not injured.
“Plumb’s cycling fell well below what is expected for a cyclist and I am glad he has been convicted for his offence.
“I would like to thank the victim, who has been helpful in assisting with the investigation.”
