Gary King pedalled thousands of kilometres around the world without a single mishap — until he was struck by a car Wednesday afternoon during his first spin along the new O'Connor Street bike lane, right here in his home town.

Adding to the irony, King, 56, was on his way home from a meeting on safe cycling networks when he collided with a car pulling out of the parking lot behind Mamma Teresa Ristorante at Somerset Street.
