    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/wales/north_west/4592412.stm]Terrible Accident (50+rs) in UK[/URL]

    Hey, it was just some ice! No one's at fault here - or that seems to be the message from the police, IMHO.

    They told me it's ok to post mileage over in the commuting forum, so you'll probably find me there these days.

    Thanks Bud Bent. I was able to read the article through your attachement. Really sad, I almost wish I hadn't read it. I ride with my son and daughter, as a matter of course I always ride further from the curb and slightly behind them so cars see me, give me some room and the children then have a little more safetly space. So it makes me sad to see a family hit.
    The case though is less about a careless attitude towards cyclists than just poor attention to the icy roads. The car which lost control could just have easily taken out a couple of pedestrians or another oncoming car. It's just a sad event.
