MOTHER OF TWO DIES IN A BICYCLE CRASH RIGHT AFTER TAKING A SMILING SELFIE.

Mother of two died following a bicycle crash moments after she took a smiling selfie on the way home from celebrating her mother's birthday.

Carmen Greenway, 41, is believed to have had one hand on the bike as she hit a bumpy patch of road and lost control while returning from having dinner at a pub.She fractured her skull and died six days later in St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, central London, after suffering a cardiac arrest.Her husband Rufus Greenway, an audio-visual company director, said she had probably had a drink on the evening of August 18 before cycling back to Isleworth, west London.The 47-year-old said his wife, who was also his business partner, was a "very competent" cyclist who would regularly take selfies. Asked why she had not worn a helmet, Mr Greenway said: "It was just a gross oversight, maybe overconfidence (that she did not wear a helmet)."It's unfortunately an unfortunate accident.
"She was not taking it at the moment of the accident," Mr Greenway added. "She was 100m from our house, one hand on the bars, quite relaxed, and probably had had a drink. "She cycled that way every weekend and perhaps it's familiarity breeding contempt."She was just having a lovely time, happy to be with her mother for her mum's birthday. One second you're happy and then next second it's a train wreck..Mr Greenway paid tribute to his wife of nearly 13 years as he told how her death had devastated her family and friends."The biggest loss is my children have lost their mother at 41. I've lost the love of my life. No rows, no arguments, I thought I was in it for 60 years," Mr Greenway added."We were just living an adventurous life together and it was getting better every day.
