  • Cyclist knocked off in Leeds this morning :(
  • Saw a cyclist being wheeled into an ambulance on my ride to work this morning, mangled bike at the side of the road 🙁

    Whoever he/she is, hope for a speedy recovery. Do hope everyone here who commutes by bike was safe today.

    It wasn’t me either, although I haven’t heard from my OH today. That’s not unusual to be fair, but would be nice to rule him out!

    A speedy recovery wished to him! (empathy from my end as was clipped by a motorist who was on the wrong side of the road on my evening commute a couple of weeks asa)

    Stay safe!

    Not me either, I was lazy this morning and drove!

    I would like to know where it was though, can’t find anything on the bbc about it yet.

    hope they’re ok though.

    Not me, off the road thanks to a failed thief who mangled my bike trying to use it a lever to bust the lock last week, posts like this reminds me that it’s not the worst bike related thing that could have happened to me.

    Get well soon, rider

    If its the same one that I saw on my ride to work it was on the corner of harrogate road where Chapel Allerton meets Chapel Town.

    I saw the cyclist face down and not moving, did not look good. The police were there at the time but no ambulance. Hope they are ok.

    almost on my route in I join chapetown rd from the st martins 50 meters down from there . That’s not normally a bad junction on a bike.

    Not me, either but I sometimes take that route. Speedy recovery to whoever it was.

    I had 4 attempts on my well being in the first mile this morning, it was crazy this morning. best wishes to the fallen cyclist and a may a swarm of drunken wasps setup home in the drivers back passage!

    Ton, I ride on the A61 towards Rothwell, so we may well pass on opposite sides of the road in the mornings!

    Yep, was that one I saw. The cyclist had been put on a stretcher and was being wheeled to the ambulance. I join there from St George’s Ave. It’s not the first time I’ve seen a cyclist knocked off at that junction either, I saw a pretty bad accident there last year too. That one happened when a cyclist was trying to turn right and the driver clipped his wheel.
