Ceremony for Peter Bissell

Cause of death still under investigation

Peter Bissell

The family of British cyclist Peter Bissell are planning a celebration of life ceremony in February for the U23 British road race champion who tragically passed away on December 29th. The cause of death of the 21-year-old is still being investigated after the talented Stevenage cyclist collapsed whilst out with friends just after Christmas. Initial stories of his choking have now been dispelled by the family.


The funeral is expected to be a private gathering of close friends and family at a date to be arranged. The family are asking that flowers are not sent but that donations are made to the David Rayner Fund instead. The website can be found at www.daveraynerfund.com. Details of the celebration of life event will be issued in due course.
