A lovely spring day today, daffodils swaying gently in the breeze, the air gently warmed by the morning sun, particulates drifting lazily out of the tailpipes of stationary taxis as you zip past them through road junctions that are "perfectly negotiable if you keep your wits about you."
But then this:
Hyde Park Corner, police and ambulance on the scene and the victim about to be blue-lighted off by the looks of it.
And then this:
Another cyclist, outside Buck House. Again 2 emergency services in attendance. The guy was on a stretcher but talking.
Hardly evidence that cycling in London is getting safer if I can stumble on the scene of two serious collisions in the space of five minutes riding. I wish both victims a speedy recovery.
