I too cycle over Putney Bridge, twice a day, and so does my girlfriend. In the evening we usually trade stories of that bloody bridge and close calls. It's particularly ordinary heading south off the bridge onto the high street with cars failing to indicate that they're about to merge.
I got to the bridge at about 6.10pm on Friday and yes, everything had just been taped off and there was a helicopter in the air above. I was hoping it wasn't a cyclist.
This thread just brings home how dangerous it can be (not that we need reminding I suppose). I'll pay my respects as I cycle over the bridge late this afternoon.
