As a keen cyclist myself I know the dangers that we face due to some of the crazy drivers around! I'm not saying all drivers are the same but less than half give cyclists the required space. It should be part of the driving test and anyone found cutting back across or in front of a cyclists should have their licence endorsed.

I hope the cyclist involved recovers and is out enjoying the fresh air again soon.

Shouldn't this be reported as "A MAN from Evesham is in a serious condition in hospital after he was hit by a car in Worcestershire." in a similar way to this article http://www.worcester

Can somebody explain to me the difference?

@ chrism - What difference does the headline make?? They are two different incidents, one cyclist one pedestrian...
What an dumb, idiotic question!

Do you have some form of OCD or something?!?!

@tarloone

I find your post rude and insensitive.

Chrism brings up a good point about how the media report incidents involving cyclists.

Try reading both artiles again.
