It was a good reasoned read up to that point! I took a huge risk this morning and cycled from Chiswick to Canary Wharf. I've been cycling to work for about 20 years in central London and never had any serious grief. This morning I was mixing with tipper lorries, taxis, motorbikes and some other "lycra clad warriors" ;-). I saw somebody jump some lights on a bike, but then I saw a couple of cars trail through lights after they'd turned red. I also saw some pedestrians step off the kerb with their heads buried in phones - no single road user is perfect. The important thing is that everyone by and large was sensible, took and gave space where appropriate, and was generally polite - lots of smiles, thumbs ups and thank yous go down v well all round. Importantly, at most junctions, there were more cyclists than cars / lorries.

I saw the aftermath of the accident at Bank - it's absolutely dreadful to see and makes you go cold, but until better lorry visibility, better driving/cycling awareness and road sense are the norm, this is going to happen again. Rush hour traffic has generally mixed well in the past, as most of the drivers are going into the city daily, and are ready for the challenges the roads bring. Thinking about it, I can only surmise that the lorry driver at Bank did not, and could not, see her, and that is tragic.
