Shit. I did wonder why the police had shut the whole place and I had to divert to shepherds bush.
Today I am surprised there haven't been a lot more incidents like this. Fucking crazy traffic, and the streets filled with drivers who don't normally drive in London and first-time cyclists who don't have the first fucking clue how to behave in traffic.

Yeah I heard about this too. Didn't know she was cycling though. Hopefully this will inspire Hammersmith to actually do something about that fucking insane round about.

be bloody careful everyone, advising people should be the norm, young girl cruised past me and old fella today only 1/2 way across to find the other direction getting the green lights - wooops. she felt really bad and just ended up hiding next to the traffic light with no island and pretended to take something of her rack and then dismount and walk off when we got the green.... london ain't no cake walk

Fuck I heard there was an accident down there, just assumed it was usual car on car bollocks.

Ride safe people, today was madness - don't expect tomorrow to be any better.
