All you cyclists out there had best be advised that you might want to keep an eye out around neck level.
I received a forwarded email through a work cycling network advising that a rider was knocked off his pushie by a wire strung across a cycle path in the Fadden Pines area in the evening of 30th August. In the ensuing fall, the rider suffered a broken collar bone and three cracked ribs, in addition to the inevitable skin loss.
It was about 5-10 minutes before anyone found the rider and called an ambulance. Apparently, he was released from hospital the following morning.
I’m sure I needn’t mention how dangerous this kind of thing could be. If anyone out there sees someone doing something like this, call the cops. If someone hits a tight wire at a fair clip they could be killed.
