I'm sure I've heard of at least half a dozen crashes like this in Regent's Park. Crashing into parked cars is very rare elsewhere in the world. Is this people in pacelines swinging around parked cars too late and/or not giving proper signals?
Whatever, hope the rider isn't too badly injured and back on the bike soon.
If you’re riding in the gutter CCW the curvature means you can only see a very short distance ahead. If you’re riding fast that means not much time.
Doesn’t take much of a lapse in concentration for the worst to happen.
(Also crashing into parked cars is fairly common, by cyclists and drivers alike)
Thanks for the info. I can imagine people new to RPOC being caught out by that.
