    So so sorry for the rider and everyone who knew him.

  • Rest in peace dear rider

  • So sad. RIP.

  • Saw the vehicles heading in attendance as its close to work, made me pause.
    Sad to hear the news.

  • RIP ryder.

  • This is soooo shitty. That is my route. Heart goes out to the fam. I was there 30 mins prior. RIP

  • RIP cyclist, condolences to family and friends.

  • Horrible news - RIP

  • I walked past this, this morning as I was heading out to a meeting (my office is 100m away) and it looked really bad. There's a traffic pinch point there with a very tight 90-degree turn for a cycle only path running counter to a one-way street and it's always looked dodgy to me.

    Gutted to hear it was fatal.

    RIP rider. My thoughts are definitely with all those affected.

  • RIP. Condolences to all who knew him.

  • RIP to the rider and thoughts with all those who knew them.

    Hitting me close as I must have rode through minutes before this happened as I work round the corner. Colleague was there at the immediate aftermath I believe and she sounded quite shaken by it.

    The number of people taking pictures of the scene as I walked past for lunch really hasn't helped my mind either.

  • Rest in Peace.

  • RIP rider.

  • RIP, this is a main route for couriers coming from the city I used to ride it 10/20 times a day, I've had and witnessed so many close calls there, even on that terrible cycle lane @Soul mentioned.
