Hey all, Lurked here for a couple of weeks, and noticed a few accident reports and whathave you. Just had a lovely day cycling around Hyde Park after owning my cheapo mountain bike for a week. Anyways, I was cycling around the west carriage drive ring when, as going round a corner, some bloke on a racing bike zips past me. About ten seconds later, a group of four tourists step into the road without looking and, even after a shout from racing-bloke, step out into the road without looking. As expected, one of them gets hid hard from the bike and goes down. God only knows how the cyclist didn't go flying. Fortunately, I was on the right side of enjoying a slow summer's cycle and so stopped in time. The girl had just a couple of cuts 'n' bruises, and appeared to be OK. She just wanted to get a taxi to a hospital and be done with it. Likewise, the cyclist who hit her's also more than fine. But no. Some American woman jumps out of her car and shouts at me for a few minutes to call the cops and an ambulance. Anything for an easy life, so I do. Bah, fourty-five minutes later, everything's fine, as is the girl, and I can finally go on my way. It did get me thinking about quite what one should do in such a situation, though. I really regretted making the call as it wasn't needed at all and the girl was going to go to hospital anyway. Next time, unless it's pretty serious, I won't be so week. I would have hung around as a witness (and/or left my details), but no more. What would others have done?
