Dr Adrian Lane, aged 58, had been on Ringinglow Road returning from a short ride in glorious weather on September 15 when he was in a collision with a car at the junction with Common Lane. He sadly died a short time later in hospital.

Following his funeral a large group of friends and family walked from his home on Greystones Road, Sheffield, and placed a white painted ’ghost bike’ at the scene as a memorial and to raise awareness of cyclists. But since then someone has changed the Common Lane road sign to ‘Adrian Lane’ with perfect lettering to further honour the father-of-two, who leaves sons Matthew, aged 27, and Sam, 17, and his partner Moni.
