Sweet, welcome to the forum
So how'd you get hit?
Toady I heard someone aged 45 in got killed in Warragul, apparently he was a member of the racing club. Not sure of any other details but this sort of thing happens to much IMO.
I was training in the early hours 5.15am and had a car swing out of a side street. The intersection was very good, the bike was lit up like a Christmas tree , reflective clothing , helmet , all the safety gear . Driver just didn't look. (he said it).
I usually train in the morning from 5.00 to 7.00 as it's the safest time.
Didn't hear about the bloke from Warragul , but you can turn on the local radio news , nearly every week there's a cyclist run over , most of those cyclists are riding to work , they ride in bad peak periods.
I used to ride to work , but now I mainly ride for sport.
Mountain biking is safer than riding on the roads where I live.
There are certain times of day I don't ride and certain roads I stay away from. Local knowledge goes along way.
cheers , thanks
