Last Monday (21st November) there were 6 of us out on the Monday AM ride, and as we were going along Stock Road one of the state’s beloved white ute driving tradespeople decided they wanted to see exactly how close they could get to a bunch of cyclists without actually killing anyone. No one was hit, words and hand gestures were exchanged and we all put it down to just another of the incidents we seem to have to put up with.
Well, today the full Monday Morning Crew were out (just Rob and I) and as we’re riding along Stock Road a motorcyclist flags us down and says: “Were you riding along here last week when a ute tried to kill you all?” After initially thinking he was going to blame us for something, it turns out he’s a licence examiner, and he had got all the details of the incident (including the number plate of the ute) and reported it to the police!
Apparently, in order for the police to act upon the report they need at least one of us to ring in to corroborate the report. So, we thought it would be best if we had all the names of the people who were out last Monday. If you were out with Rob and I, can you please comment below so we can file a report?
