just reading on local news, he was "stabilised" in a local hosp, then air lifted to another hospital. Sounds bad enough.

Ouch, hope Nicky had some form of head protection before hitting that windscreen !

Seen a cyclist in bits near the coombe yesterday where a van ran straight across him.

They should probably be made to wear bike helmets and high viz at least in dense urban areas, as whatever about normal commuters using cycle-lanes - those mid-life crisis eejits whizzing about with olympic style sunglasses obviously can't see where they are going, and just want to look 'cool' ;

Solution - ban the sunglasses !

I believe some are also being distracted by fast tempo 'workout' music in ear pods which can lead to a serious lapse in concentration and fatalistic errors of judgement, particularly with fatigue ;

Solution - ban the earphones !

Some are quite evidently inhibited by squeezing all that blubber into tight fitting spandex and just like the fashion conscious 19th century women's corset fad, this has proven to be a major contributor to light headedness and ultimate fainting and collapsing following prolonged periods with restricted blood flow ;

Solution - ban the Spandex !

Unfortunately, cyclists are unlikely to take it upon themselves to drop the latest haute couture and trending fashions in the interest of road safety, so regulation needs to be introduced by the RSA as a matter of urgency to help the cyclists help themselves.

This needs to stack up financially for mandarins in power or it's a non-runner from the outset, so may be promoted and incentivised by 'on-the-spot' fines issued by the Gardai for non-compliance / dangerous use of / distracting accessories and could be backed up by data and accident statistics to drive the point home through a series of tv adverts, not withstanding the considerable cost and inconvenience to other motorists, who at least pay a road tax towards their emergency services, road blocks and downtime with ambulances and fire brigades having to powerhose the scene up afterwards.

We need to act now and get a petition going, procrastination is the grave in which pestilent morality and dead cyclists are buried, Nicky Hayden could be the catalyst for change and if this helps to save just one life - then it'll be worth it.

I see where you were coming from on some of this. Nicky put up a picture on his Instagram out cycling a few hour prior to this and he was wearing a helmet so fingers crossed he had one on when the incident happened.

When it comes to sunglasses some sort of eye protection is almost a necessity when cycling as you wouldn't believe the amount of dust that gets kicked up into your eyes by vehicles that overtake you.

Wearing headphones cycling is absolute madness, how can you be aware of your surroundings if you cant hear what is around you.

Regards a catalyst for change unfortunately I doubt it the fact is people in vehicles with four or more wheels just don't pay attention to those of us on two wheels motorised or otherwise. Michele Scarponi a high level professional cyclist and former Giro d'italia winner was killed a few weeks ago cycling in his hometown by someone he knew who claimed he didn't see him.

Also Chris Froome three times winner of the Tour de France was deliberately knocked off his bike by a cager last week

This morning at 8:20 physicians Bufalini Hospital in Cesena have issued another report on the conditions of the US pilot confirming that the clinical condition which had already been announced last night:

" There are no substantial changes compared to those yesterday evening. Nicky Hayden remains hospitalized in the intensive care unit, the clinical picture remains extremely serious



his head injury is quite severe by all accounts, hopefully he'll get through it.

I know you're ripping the piss, but some people actually believe this shit.

Cyclists are seen as an annoyance so passing them no matter how dangerous is perfectly justified.
