Cape Town cyclist killed, another injured

A Cape Town cyclist was killed and another injured when they were hit by a vehicle in Muizenberg.

Emergency medical services spokeswoman Keri Davids said a man was declared dead on Prince George Drive on Tuesday and a seriously injured woman was taken to hospital.

Pedal Power Association member Noel van Zyl urged cyclists and motorists to be tolerant and adhere to the rules of the road.

His son Andrew was killed in an accident in Milnerton nine years ago.

"I think it is about the behaviour of both sides. Motorists and cyclists need to work together to solve the problem of cyclists being knocked down," he said.

He said more cycle lanes were needed in Cape Town.
