More reasons why gungahlin drives needs point to point cameras…

And what would be said speed limit for cyclists?

Is it actually normal to cycle in -4 degree weather, that would be some wind chill?

sorry i was vague. what i meant was they will put this death as another statistic to back up their plans for point to point cameras

Ah true. I agree completely. They will definitely try to twist this for their agenda despite it being unrelated to speeding, like most of the accidents I’ve seen.

It won’t be listed as a road fatality.

Thoughts/condolences with the Williams family/friends.

Sorry, this one went right over my head. Any more connection information?

It sounds like he is implying that he was speeding. That’s a fair effort on a bike…

Seems like he was a bit of an Australian cycling legend…

Unfortunately, the cycling community has confirmed who this rider was. It was a tragic medical event.

He was riding quite early, which usually could mean he was on a training ride or knew what he was doing. Very sad, and a depiction of the worst case scenario.

Condolences to the family.

Very sad. Perhaps out of respect for the dead we could refrain from the normal cyclists vs drivers debate.

Comic_and_Gamer_Nerd 10:59 am 14 Aug 12

Yeah very weird wording. Was he hit by a car or had a freak heart attack or what?

IN B 4 KEEP BIEKS OFF ERR RERDS

Sad day for his family. way too young.

G-Fresh 10:45 am 14 Aug 12

Very difficult to fall OFF a bike. Do they mean he fell over? Or was he launched off the bike?

Condolences to the family and friends of the person.
