Elderly as a description is far from the truth for such a dear friend who was a very competent cyclist. She will be sadly missed by so many friends and her lovely family.

I have an office just close by to the scene of the accident. It is of course extremely sad that this lady lost her life just going about her daily tasks. I object to you describing her as ’elderley’ as 66 is certainly not a description of an elderley person. This almost puts blame on the poor victim as unfortunately elderley is often linked to confused and careless.
