We say a very sad goodbye to Nigel Buchan-Swanson (G, 1966) who died of a heart attack on Sunday 20th July 2018 while competing in the RideLondon cycling event.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Deborah and all his family at this time. Deborah commented to the press that Nigel had died doing what he loved and we pray that he continues the race cycling with the angels.

Nigel, ever the outdoorsman, was a great supporter of the UK ODU.
