    I am a road user but it is very apparent that my main mode of transport is only considered in road planning as an after thought, or at worst, in the cases of Bow roundabout and Kings Cross, there is evidence that TfL told the road planning assessing those junctions to ignore any safety concerns with cyclists and pedestrians as their 'score' was too low and would impede traffic flow.

    Unlike a motor vehicle crash, everyone survived with what seem minor injuries. The people involved clearly talked afterwards, and I would think more was said - perhaps even sorry - than what quoted.

    Lets get more paths and better road infrastructure created so more options open to the growing number of people who ride.

    Ensuring there is a thorough cycle training regime at schools will help generations grow up knowing more about safe cycling. Parents can help too by setting a good example.
