Please be safe out there guys and gals. Our Saturday morning club ride ended abruptly on a sour note this morning when a bakkie drifted into the yellow lane and took out our group and about 5 of us hit the tar. This was on the stretch of road that connects the N7 to Melkbosstrand. A couple of the guys in the group ended up with severe road rash, torn clothing and broken bikes but thankfully so far no-one has reported any broken bones, but that could change as they are still getting checked out by their doctors. The bakkie that drifted into us didn't even bother to stop and only returned about 10 minutes later because other vehicles chased him down. When he did arrive he was aggressive and seemed to be slurring his words. This is pure conjecture but I suspect there was alcohol involved. The worst part is that the driver seems to be a fellow cyclist because he was wearing a Tankwa Trek top and looked the part. We have reported it to the police, hopefully they follow up. Surely this is a clear violation of the new 1 meter law? Any way, just very glad that we all made it home alive and most of us relatively unscathed.
