Cyclist injured, on 7 News tonight.

Postby MilkRacer » Thu Jan 10, 2013 10:57 pm

Searched the web for over 30 minutes, can't find the story. Apparently a prominent figure in WA cycling, now in RPH. Anyone find some info :?: Was involved in a 'hit and run.' Story was on 7 News at 6 PM.

It was Jim Krynen, Public Transport Authority's Cycling Integration Manager. He has been racing bikes and improving Perth's bike network/infrastructure for over 30 years and some clown just cleaned him up in Maida Vale and drove off. Hit him so hard it tore the left rear view mirror clean off.

Just another day out there on Perth roads :roll:

Doesn't matter. It is the default browser at work used by most of the office. If it isn't on there most people working here wouldn't know about it. So whether they are or aren't respected news outlets, for this office they are the most used.

Hahah

I hope they find the driver culpable and follow it up on the news. If there is anything worse than getting hit by a car, it's not getting the registration when the car drives off leaving you to foot medical expenses and loss of personal property. Too many times (including myself) cyclists get brutalised on the roads and for some reason it happens more frequently in the eastern suburbs.

On the whole, Perth drivers are pretty appalling but I fear more for my life every day riding to Midland on my road bike than I would bombing Mount Street on my brakeless fixed gear bike. I think of Perth's eastern suburbs as killing fields for cyclists, cars being the Khmer Rouge.
