Default Boris bike down !!

A cyclist on a 'Boris bike' has been taken to hospital with multiple
injuries after a collision with a lorry in central London.

It happened just after 13:00 BST at the junction of Gray's Inn Road and
Theobald's Road.

The male cyclist, in his early 20s, suffered head injuries in the crash.

No helmet then?

''As the severity of the injury increased the benefit of wearing a
helmet increased, which is very hard to ignore I think,'' Dr Olivier said.

Results showed that cyclists without helmets were more than 3.9 times as
likely to sustain a head injury to those with helmets. Helmets reduced
the risk of moderate head injury by 49 per cent, of serious head injury
by 62 per cent, and of severe head injury by 74 per cent".
