CYCLING ACCIDENT AT GRESFORD. 4 DANGER POSTS WANTED. A very bad bicycling accident, writes a correspondent, occurred at Gresford on Satur- day last. Two young men who were en route riding from Liverpool towards Oak Alyn, ventured to ride down the hill which leads from the church to the mills. Neither rider had any brake upon his machine, it appears. The first rider had got safely round the corner under the railway, where the road makes a sharp curve to the right, when apparently unaware that this is by no means the bottom of the hill, lost con- trol of his bicycle, and dashed away, coming with full force right against the bridge wall over the river Alyn. He was dashed against the wall and then upon the ground, his bicycle being twisted into all shapes. His friend, seeing the danger about to befal his comrade, had the good luck to be able to jump. off, and so saved himself, although he broke his bicycle pedal in the attempt. The first poor fellow, perfectly unconscious, was in a terrible state meanwhile," and was carried into Mr. Finchett's cottage close by, where all that was possible was done. Dr. Manisty came, and considered the case of a serious nature, the unfortunate man having his left eye fearfully injured, and vomiting blood Quite unconscious, he was driven off to the Infirmary at Wrexham, where he was detained. His 0friend was bent upon taking the injured man to Liverpool to his home, but this, it was seen, was quite impossible in such an injured condition. The bicyclist who was saved by jumping off his machine, stated he never knew the steepness of the hill. It certainly is a most dangerous hill to attempt to ride down upon a bicycle, especially with no brake. The District Council ought at once to erect a red danger board by the Vicarage to warn riders, and indeed not only there but at Mount Alyn Hill close by, and also at the Singrett Hill, all three of which are exceedingly steep and dangerous, having bad curves, and large loose stones. This is only one of several bad accidents which have occurred upon this hill this summer.
