Vincent Taylor, 34, of Denford Road, Ringstead, appeared at Northampton Magistrates’ Court on Monday charged with causing death by dangerous driving.

Magistrates sent the case to Northampton Crown Court for a plea and case management hearing in March.

Shortly after his death Mike Walsh, who was a fellow member of Daventry Cycling Club, said Mr Bloom was a “well-known figure in local cycling circles who lived for cycling.”
