Fresh demands for safer roads have come from London cyclists after a man was knocked off his bike and killed by an Olympic Shuttle bus last week. 

The 28-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene after he collided with a bus which was taking journalists away from the Olympic park. 

“This crash confirms our worst fears about the failure of Olympic Authorities and Transport for London to provide adequate safe cycle routes around the Olympic Park: a huge amount of money has been spent with very little to show for it,” said Ashok Sinha, chief executive of a cycling safety campaign in London. 

Members of the national charity CTC also explained that road conditions could easily be improved by increasing training for both drivers and cyclists. 

It is estimated that around half a million cycle trips are made in London every day, and last year there were a total of 16 fatal accidents involving cyclists, a 60 per cent increase on 2010’s statistics.
