Those in the cycling know will recognise Lindsi as a well known cycling campaigner in Southampton.  She is Chairman of Southampton Cycling Campaign and recently took part in the Southampton Skyride.  Lindsi's most recent campaign was called Missing Links where she was arguing for low cost improvements to cycle lanes so they would be joined up through the city.

Lindsi sadly suffered life threatening injuries after coming off her bicycle in a cycle lane on Wessex Way in Bournemouth.  Apparently the accident happened when Lindsi attempted to ride over a five metre long piece of plastic which was lying diagonally across her path.  She suffered head injuries and was taken to Poole hospital.  Her condition is critical but she is in a stable condition.

Police have confirmed that Lindsi was not wearing a cycle helmet at the time of the accident.  Two days earlier she had her helmet stolen and had not replaced it at the time of her unfortunate accident.

I very much hope that Lindsi makes a full recovery and is able to continue her good work in the local area for cyclists.
