Seems the same criminals struck again today. Again 3 males attacked 2 cyclists today on the same road (Waarburgh) using the same method (just with pangas added to the inventory), one of the cyclists is now in hospital recovering with a broken arm, luckily the other cyclist managed to scare them off with a pepper spray gun. This happened at about 11h00 this morning in broad daylight.
I would advise strongly against riding this road unless you are part of a big group. The road is deceptively close to a squatter camp (its there across the N1 you just don't notice it) and almost no cars. Easy for criminals to wait & ambush cyclists passing through between Klapmuts & Northern suburbs. (Coming from someone who have literally rode this road 100's of times without incident but will avoid in future)
