This morning, Wednesday 13 November 2013, a woman cyclist was dragged under the wheels of a lorry, which appeared to be turning from Bow roundabout on to the southbound A12.
We in Lambeth Cyclists, like many Londoners, are shocked and angered at what has been the fourth cycling death in just eight days.
The London Cycling Campaign is calling on the Mayor Boris Johnson to take immediate action to prevent further avoidable deaths – first, by putting in place a safe design for Bow roundabout.
Protest ride tonight
LCC are holding a flash protest at Bow roundabout (Mile End Road, E1) tonight organised in response to yet another death at the failed junction, which still presents a totally unacceptable risk to cycling.
We will be laying flowers at the scene of the crash and then cycling around the roundabout from 6.30-6.45pm. We will be dispersing by 7pm.
Assemble from 6pm (for 6.30pm start) on pavement outside McDonalds, at Bow roundabout (if the roundabout is still closed by the police, we’ll assemble as close as possible on Bow Road west side)
Please bring lights, candles, placards for this peaceful protest
