A great cyclist and all round good guy, he'll be seriously missed by anyone who met him.

Sorry to hear that. Sending my love.
Very sad indeed. Thoughts to all who knew him and hope he has peace in the hereafter.
Ride in Peace fella. Thought to all friends and family.
R.I.P. Thought to all those who knew & loved him.
Ben was a core member of the LSF Leeds fixed community. He was out on group rides every week and was partying every weekend from 2008 until he moved over to Manchester, although always remained a regular face around LS6.
Like Johnny says, this guy was a beast of a rider. There was no chance beating him up any hill and he won many of the races and events we put on back in the day. When out-of-towners would come up for a race and ask who's wheel was best to follow, Treanor was our top reply.
Kind, loving, fun and generous - this guy was a rare breed.
The LSF crew has suffered an unfathomable loss but the support everyone continues to show demonstrates what a great person he was and how close we all remain.
From his local paper:
Thanks for those links, he sounds like an awesome guy. So sad to hear about this. RIP.
RIP young rider. Sounds like he was a great guy :(
Some young people make a big contribution in a small amount of time to the people around them; more than some of us manage in a whole life-time....I didn't know Ben but clearly he's one of them. Thoughts.............................................
My condolences to his loved ones.
A sad moment for the forum too. I never met this feller but this place always values everyone here. 'Ride in peace'.
Ride on Ben Treanor.
Sad to read this.
It sounds like he was one of the good ones. My thoughts go out to his friends, family and loved folk.
Sorry to read this news.RIP.
