Incident type: Crash
Location of incident: London Road, Carlisle, CA1 2PD, United Kingdom


Cycling infrastructure often removes the cyclist from the flow of traffic for "safety", but when there's such a convoluted piece of road as this, it can make the cyclist nearly invisible when it dumps them back onto the road. A terrible junction full of distractions. If I hadn't been removed from the flow of traffic, this would never have happened. I do actually feel sorry for the driver in this instance, he seemed a nice guy and was genuinely upset this had happened.
