Rode past the aftermath this morning, police checking the back wheel of the car, and the bike’s back wheel was very bent up.

It was on a very straight, open part of Mallawa so difficult to understand how he was hit.

Please look out for cyclists, most of us are very courteous people just trying to get from a to b.

Wishing him a quick recovery.

Yeah and what about the cyclists who run red lights and don’t give way? It works both ways…

The man on the bike suddenly crossed without looking, there were witnesses- why do people always assume it was the driver!!

Nothing in my comment assumes it was the driver’s fault. We are all humans, have family and loved ones. If wishing someone a quick recovery gets your back up, i think you may have more issues than cyclists on the road.
