This prevents any journos from doing anything too naughty. If anyone slows down too much the leader gives them a telling off over the radio.


That doesn't happen. Ever.

I read elsewhere that he is slowly recovering but is still in ICU

I have just sent an email to http://www.sydney.mclaren.com/ regarding this.
Akuna Bay is where most mothers with young school children go , to ride their bikes. They go there to keep safe and be able to come home for their kids after school
Many men who have days off go there to get off the road so that they can come home to the family alive.
I am so angry about this that I think the National parks should stop these killing machines from speeding there. It will happen again if not worse. James was trying to keep safe, thats why he was in Akuna.
The more cyclists that send an email to the Mclaren web page and to the National Parks the better. They don't even see us as people.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

FYI - posted on the Syd McLaren FB page

doubt it'll be approved to go public.


It did go live on there.


It's since disappeared. In fact they've deleted all posts bar one later than March 4. I'm sure that when I checked this the other week, there were a number of posts from May.

No, its still there - you need to look at "Visitor Posts" (no response though)
