Re: Boris Backs Bikes Between Buses


Garry from Cork

24 years ago I spent three years in London. Used to mostly cycle to
Saw result of horrific accident one day on my way home. I'm a doctor
but I was shocked.
A bus had just rolled over a cyclist's foot. The sole of her foot was
hanging on by one edge. I imagine that they had to amputate it. It's
called a degloving injury.
I don't know how it happened.

It's a dangerous world out there. I'm back cycling as much as ever
after my altercation with a car last August. I've a small handicap
(appropriate) in my left hand. Can't make a proper fist and the joint
on my ring finger, left hand remains sore, but I can type and cycle
with no problem.
