Many of them go flat out round bends in this area on their way to and from the cafe. Too many times they have come towards me, apexed a bend I'm on and the wheels are twitching on the white lines / cats eyes. One mistake and they would be straight into me as they slid across the road.
At least in the car you have some protection. On the cycle, well, you've just witnessed the reality.
It really spoils this area for riding sometimes and there isn't a way to stop it.

As you say, tragic news, and what a waste .
