Velonews - Roadrage


After one cyclist slammed into the rear of his car and vaulted over it into oncoming traffic, and another crashed through his rear window, Dr. Christopher Thomas Thompson called 911 and told the operator, “They’ll tell you they are seriously injured, but they’re not.”

Ride to work day

Every day is a ride to work and school and uni and the shops day, but 14 October 2009 is the official, compulsory, national Ride to Work Day. There’s breakfasts and events all over, including at RPA, and a big one at Hyde Park. Keep an eye out for your fellow cyclists, they might need some mechanical assistance or maybe just an encouraging tinkle on the bell. Either way make sure they get a sense of the camaraderie our freewheeling community is famous for. Btw if you register you can win a fancy Trek bicycle.
