It has emerged over the past 24 hours that the first cyclist to be killed in London this year was an experienced courier. This is a poignant reminder that even if you follow safety advice and have experience there are still many dangers out there. It also brings home once more the importance of campaigns such as the recent one by The Times.
Henry Warwick was a bicycle courier who worked for Rico Logistics. The incident occurred last Friday at the junction of Wormwood Street and Bishopsgate. This was promptly reported on by the Times and BBC London.
Many members of LFGSS have expressed their grief in the forum. In the thread there is also a video of Henry Warwick introducing Ed Robertson to life in London as a cycle courier.
A memorial ride will be held on Friday.
