Very sad. :(

I recall riding on Nudgee Rd near the entry to the bikepath. A garbage truck ran me off the road - I ended up going cross-country to the bikepath to avoid getting squished.

Yes, I'm still here. Thanks Dave. Previous patterns considered, I'm not due to be run down again for another 5 years.

I won't comment on this as threads such as this have caused me trouble on occasions (not here). However, I will waste my breath again by recomending the Zefal Spy Mirror to world full of superficial fashionistas that won't listen.

Terribly sad news.

bad bad news.

but not really surprising is it?
given the chunks of metal we are up against on the road... with not even a bike lane for "protection"
i have access to some bikes to make/erect a monument
