Sounds like the police have given the final word on that then.I spoke to them last night. No one had reported it and they've no similar previous example. Nothing they can do under the law unless there's any suggestion of malicious action. They were very sympathetic but can only suggest civil action.
I'd just like to know that if someone made a mistake they'll learn from it and take more care next time. If someone can tell me that it was my fault I'll hold my hands up.
No - The issue is there isn't any clear evidence.There is clear evidence that the “cycling furiously” law has been well and truly infringed.
Unfortunately, there appears to be no evidence whatsoever that has happened.Hope and best wishes for a speedy recovery.
Even more shocking is the fact that this happened on a shared cycle path. It’s crazy that the police won’t take any action. There is clear evidence that the “cycling furiously” law has been well and truly infringed.

We can surmise that the other party was probably going to fast for what they could see ahead, what happened next is pure guess work - maybe a swerve into AD's path to avoid a pedestrian or a loose dog or just lost control or was on the wrong side because they didn't treat the path like road and ride on the left. Poor old AD needs an eye witness and / or the story from the other party to try to piece it all together
OK but I thought that the evidence is reasonable. I am assuming the following "facts": -Unfortunately, there appears to be no evidence whatsoever that has happened.
We can surmise that it is likely, but supposition is not evidence.
Without either eye-witnesses or CCTV, there is no useful evidence.
Yes but there's no police available for this sort of road policing any more, of going to interview a road casualty in a two-casualty collision to see if they incriminate themself.Again if the damage to the bikes and persons concerned, prove that the impact was him riding into AD, then not a problem surely?
The last thing I want to do is give AD false hope (not a lawyer) but at the very least I would have thought the police could question the other party to find out his side of the story.
