Anyone see this happen?

One of my Triathlon collegues, Hally Bolt, was involved in a cycling accident last weekend. On Saturday morning Hally and a co-rider were collected from behind by a motorcyclist, whilst training on their way to Wollongong. Hally has sustained a broken elbow and cuts and abrasions and has spent the weekend medicated, but is now starting to come to terms with some new adventures in pain, some metal in her arm permanently, and that her campaign for this year's Australian Ironman is over. We are very relieved that Hally is OK but feel her disappointment, especially given the fantastic season Hally has had; delivering some scorching times over the last few months events.

Looks like it was an ugly, very avoidable "accident".

The motorbike attempted to go between the riders, then after the accident claimed he did it on purpose? http://forums.transitions.org.au/index.php?showtopic=35682

I had a biker try to bully me out of the painted onroad bike lane on Lyons Rd West the other week...

Cheers,

Reading through the posts on that accident, I came across this.

The only bike pack I would unequivocally vouch for and feel safe riding with would be Dulwich Hill
