Good news about the cyclist who was run over by a lorry on Victoria Street on Tuesday: According to a post on the London Fixed Gear Forum, he “has had an operation and is hopefully going to be ok though his leg is in a bad way”.
Good news about Bow Roundabout as well: Finally, Transport for London plans to make the roundabout saf(er) for cyclists, as they explain here. London Cycling Campaign celebrates TfL’s move. Danny, who runs the brilliant “Cyclists in the City” blog, asks: “Is this the start of something new or a one-off?” Mark, who does “I bike London” blog, gives a cautious welcome to change at Bow roundabout .

One thought on “Cycling in London – Assorted Links 12.01.2011”
I haven’t cycled much in London for the last few years, this morning I cycled to Bethnal Green from Chingford. It’s mad out there. When I got back I went to the police and picked up two Road Traffic Collision/Accident forms and will report two drivers. I’m sure they won’t do anything about it but they’ll have to go through the motions. There must be thousands of such incidents every day, if the police received even hundreds of forms every day they would have to pay attention.
Do you have a database of offending vehicles?
