A new crowdfunded app will log cycle accidents, injuries and near misses in the capital

Research teams from the Orthopaedic and Emergency Departments of Barts Health have collaborated with Barts charity ITP and mySociety to release an app that explores bike related injuries in London

The Bespoke project collaborators have developed a crowd sourcing app that will log cycle accidents, injuries and near misses in the hope of mapping cycling blackspots.

The app was suggested after Orthopaedic and Emergency Departments of Barts Health saw an increase in the number of cyclists brought into A and E departments after cycling on London's road.

The charity Guide Dogs has warned that cyclists need to take extra care when they are riding near visually impaired people who are using guide dogs. In a survey, it found that a quarter of guide dog oweners in London had been hit by a bike. And 70% of the dog owners had experienced a near miss with a cyclist riding on the pavement or through a red light.

The charity is asking cyclists to ring their bell or call out if they see a person with a guide dog waiting to cross a road. It also warns against riding up behind a guide dog in case the animal is startled.
