Cycling magic in Loughborough

Plans have been drawn up for the first cycle lane on a roundabout.

County Hall highways engineers said installing a "magic roundabout" at an accident blackspot in Loughborough would save lives and prevent serious injury to riders.

But cyclists described the idea as "barmy" and "dangerous" as motorists would not be expecting to see them there.

Leicestershire County Council said
six cyclists have been knocked off their bikes and injured at the roundabout, where Epinal Way meets Alan Moss Road in the past three years.
