Tandem cyclists killed some time back vic

Postby RetroPilot » Sun Jan 01, 2012 10:16 am

A couple riding a tandem were tragically killed a few weeks back by a dump truck, somewhere maybe in southern bayside /peninsular Victoria, cant think exactly where, but I meant to post if someone had more details at the time but didnt get round to it..

additionally distressing and intriguing was the fact that, reportedly at the time, the dump truck was not even travelling in same direction as the bike?

Does anyone have or recall more gories ?

yes, I found it meantime on page 4, and other references to it including yours by searching keyword 'tandem"..

swerved something as large as a tipper to avoid a fkn dog...unreal.
