Faster than a speeding (car!?)

By paperboy 24 April 2013 46

Heading home along Belconnen Way last night I came across one of the most bizarre sights I’ve seen while driving.

As I approached the traffic lights near Bunnings, I caught a brief glimpse of a guy on a bike, but paid little attention. As the lights changed, he virtually disappeared. It was only as I approached the Coulter Drive intersection, I noticed him flying along, at a pace. I was travelling just over 60kph, but he was pulling further away. His peddles were turning, but not at a rate to travel uphill at that sort of speed.

I assume he had some form of electric bike, doctored to override the usual speed limit of around 25kph.

The rider turned into Page before I had a chance to get a close look at the bike, but I’m sure the police would be interested in having a chat with him.


UPDATE: Ed has sent through this photo:

Here’s a photo for that story about the speeding cyclist.

It looked like an Action bus driver given the uniform

He was doing about 65km/h east bound uphill on Belconnen Way

Fun how its fine to sell things that its almost impossible to use legally, and no need to mention that minor detail. Especially the “Street”, given these can only be ridden on private property, how Street can it be?

the “Street”??? don’t see it. They all seem to be named after forms of destruction to me.

I just saw the photo with the guy in the green hi-vis vest going up Belco Way, and it’s not the same idiot as my idiot on the GDE this arvo. My bloke was a young idiot, and his bike was all bare metal and very beat up looking…no red frame. And he could definitely do more than 65 km/h.

It’s hard to believe that two of these imbeciles can motivate around our main drags in broad daylight without a passing rozzer laying a hand on them.

No rego and no insurance. If they hit you then it’s tuffsky shitsky, as they say in Mother Russia.

Now that this has been highlighted here my guess is that it’s only a matter of time before someone in the bureaucracy reins these buggers in.The power of RA!
