Cycling blogger hit by a car – here’s how it happened..

Just shared this on my Twitter but thought it would probably be of interest here on the blog too..

Cycle Gaz who runs The Views of a Cyclist from Croydon was yesterday hit by a car as he cycled on the bus lane. Here is the YouTube of the accident:

Fortunately he has escaped without serious injuries. As Gaz said in his comments on YouTube on a good day he may have seen this coming. The video acts as a good reminder to be as careful as possible especially in the wintery conditions. In this situation there is little Gaz could have done differently.

The video is also a good demonstration of the value of having a helmet camera to record your cycling. Something that I’ve noticed is becoming more common amongst London’s cyclists.
