Tragic news today - death of a cyclist. Driver arrested. https://www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk/news/crime/cyclist-killed-after-b...

 

Obviously, the details are scant, but it is worth noting that this road is the route of the controversial Cycle Superhighway between Bradford and Leeds

Near Cockshott Lane and Stanningley Fire Station. Couple of obvious possibilities - my bets are on a collision over the crossing of Cockshott Lane, or a motorist blindly pulling in to park at the shops just before it.

I've nearly been hit in the latter fashion myself on this cycleway - someone turned left across the cycle path to enter the garage at the Thornbury Gyratory at full speed without bothering to look or slow down, even though you can't see the path for the bus stop.
