British Cycling has called for HGVs to be removed during rush hour traffic after a cyclist was killed in a road crash just hours after the successful first RideLondon festival this weekend.
The cycling body's policy and legal affairs director Martin Gibbs,said on Monday:
British Cycling were saddened to hear of the death of a cyclist in London this morning after a brilliant weekend of cycling in the capital.
The vast majority of cycling deaths in London are caused by HGVs and it is essential that we act now. The mayor has promised to study the policy options to remove HGV danger and we urge him to deliver on that without delay.
