I don't think so.....


Rule 67.
Leave plenty of room when passing parked vehicles and watch out for doors being opened or pedestrians stepping into your path

I believe there is further advice as to what the "plenty of room when passing parked vehicles" is .. but I cannot find it at the moment.
They do make interesting reading https://www.gov.uk/guidance/the-highway ... s-59-to-82

Has there been any recent media regarding the driver in MH's death? Being charged etc?

I dont recall anything has ever been mentioned and what happened after the accident

I read on one FB bike forum that *apparently* the driver has been charged and things are progressing although no more than that. it will certainly be an interesting one to follow. a number of other people commented on the Canberra social media scene at the time that they saw him clearly as he was well lit up. :|

I heard some whispers but nothing I'll repeat until decision happens one way or the other.

After many long races with no major issues, 3 fatalities in 3 events so close together. Really, really tragic.

Have to wonder why the latest race was started at 10pm ?

I think they start at that time so they can ride fresh through the first night, then most people would get a full day's riding during the day too.

Could also be something to do with local traffic conditions at the start point or trying to get a particular part of the journey the next morning to occur during daylight hours.

The 3 fatalities, is there a pattern to them? Perhaps time of day (lighting conditions)
If the R-1 rule is broken, what happens to N+1?

It's happening for 2018.

New rules with tons of lights/reflectors for everyone, and a new relay mode to split the ride into 4 predefined legs.
