Cycling safety is back on the agenda in Cardiff, with two incidents reported in the last week. On October 23, it was reported by WalesOnline that a cyclist had collided with a bus on North Road. The next day, October 24, local cyclists and pedestrians were tweeting about an incident at the junction of Colum Road and Corbet Road.
