    Crash claims life of another London cyclist

    By David Brown on November 15, 2013

    A young cyclist has become the fourth rider to be killed on London’s roads within the space of just eight days.

    Aged in her mid-20s, the woman died after her bike was involved in a crash with a lorry at the Bow Roundabout in east London during the morning rush hour on November 13.

    So far this year the lives of 12 people have been claimed by cycle accidents on the capital’s roads.

    In addition, road traffic accidents across the county are leaving more and more cyclists suffering serious personal injuries.

    Series of tragedies

    The incident on Wednesday has prompted campaigners to call on London mayor Boris Johnson to take action to prevent further accidents.

    A separate accident on the same morning left a male cyclist in his late 20s with life-threatening injuries, after his bike was involved in a collision with a heavy goods vehicle in Millbank.

    The day before a cyclist in his 40s died following a collision with a bus in Croydon and four days before that a man died after crash involving a coach in Holborn.

    Meanwhile, another cyclist died on November 5 after he was involved in a collision with a tipper lorry on the CS2 Mile End Road cycle superhighway in east London.

    Campaigners call for action

    Following the latest death hundreds of riders gathered at the Bow Roundabout – where two other cyclists have been killed over the last two years – for an evening vigil and protest organised by the London Cycling Campaign (LCC) group.

    Ashok Sinha, of the LCC, said: “We, like many Londoners, are shocked and angered at what has been the fourth cycling death in just eight days, and we’re calling on the mayor, Boris Johnson, to take immediate action to prevent further avoidable deaths – first, by putting in place a safe design for Bow roundabout.”

    London Assembly member John Biggs said Mr Johnson, who has described the latest death as a “tragedy”, must stop encouraging cyclists to use CS2 unless he “urgently implements safety measures”.
