Walked past on the way back from lunch, road was closed, still plenty of ambulances, Dr cars, police taking statements. I didn't see who was involved (was a big white coach stopped in the middle of the road - i think the ones that do runs to the airport), but looks like it was a cyclist. Horrible.

Sigh, work yards from this crossroads, there's severe roadworks going on at the moment, but it's normally a relatively safe junction.
Bishopsgate is a nightmare road, terrible surface, and way too many Coaches and HGVs bouncing along, it's given me 5 stitches already.
Thoughts with those involved, hoping for the best.

Hi all - just registered to post here. Not a cyclist myself, I am on 2 wheels but they have a motor attached.
I walked past moments after it happened - spoke to some people who witnessed it and heard he got dragged under a coach as it turned left. I saw the paramedics trying to resuscitate him but didn't hang around.
Have since heard that he didn't make it.
Although Bishopsgate is a nightmare (and I've had words with cyclists going the wrong way up the 1-way section multiple times), this was at the junction with London Wall/Wormwood Street.
My thoughts are with him & his loved ones

Here's the second citation.
I've already said it further up thread but would like to reiterate my heartfelt sympathies to the friends and family of the rider. I'm sorry for the loss which has been forced upon you.
