I'm in Bedford but hadn't heard of this. Awful news. Want to know more as it says she was with "other members of a cycling club" and that road's in the middle of nowhere so first thoughts are frustrated driver etc. Will see.

I have a few more details as this is my old club. The young lady's name is Orla, she had only been with Cambridge CC since last year. She was indeed out on a club run with I think 8 others, she was at the back and either touched a wheel or hit something in the road, tragically she fell into the path of a car and died instantly. My mate Jan said that the others on the ride were very badly shocked and he thought the club would "take a long time to get over this". Her boyfriend was with her and the air ambulance arrived quickly but nothing could be done. Her parents have flown over from Ireland.
My thoughts are with them and also the club members on that ride. RIP Orla

So so sad and so horrible for all involved.

I had only found about their club a month or so ago, and was going to join them to try a club run for the first time this Sunday,, would have been last week but had a show to go to.

Feels kind of odd to go now.

Going to give it a few weeks, but will.

I also organise the Cambridge fixed gear rides, my worst nightmare if this was to happen.
