The cyclist hit my other half full on - he must have been going at a fair old speed round that bus. He stopped only briefly then shot off - good thing my other half was only shook up, couldve easily broken his wrists when he fell forward. That has also made me very wary of my own cycling and mindful of pedestrians.
And if cyclists were made to display some form of identification such as a number plate then you'd have been able to contact the authorities and promptly had him arrested for leaving the scene and failure to report....
