Safety - the biggest risk - other cyclists
I live in Central London EC4, I cycle, drive and have an HGV Class 1. I really enjoy cycling and it is a great way to get around. Working in Dagenham I frequently cycle to and from work to EC4 using Cycle Superhighway 3, but on Friday for the first time in five years suffered my worst crash - caused by another cyclist. To be honest I am not surprised. Too often cyclist are not looking where they are going, overtaking with no room to get back, cycling too fast or going across red (cycle) lights. The biggest risk to cycling in London is other irresponsible cyclists. It really is time that perhaps some cyclists looked at their own standard of road behaviour before taking time to criticise other road users, road designers and planners.
I will be off my bike for a couple of weeks now and have no alternative but to drive my car, all due to some idiot cyclist.
