The cyclist who was killed riding his bike on a busy north London main road was a prominent member of New North London Synagogue.
Retired GP Clive Richard s suffered a heart attack after he was hit by a lorry on Archway Road in Highgate last week.
The 67-year-old, from Whetsone, was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.
The family said: “We have lost our beloved and very special husband, father and grandfather too soon. Forever in our hearts and sadly missed.”
“He was a doctor and spent his whole life saving people’s lives. London is not built for cyclists. They try to get more people to cycle with the Boris bikes, but the infrastructure just isn’t there for them.”
