Very sad.

Word is that it she was riding downhill, went wide through a sharp corner straight into the oncoming car.More here...

Yup. Unfortunately that is the case.

She rode with Cronulla Tri Club and I believe was due to meet Julian later on in the ride.

Thoughts are with her family and friends. Ride safe everyone.

I spoke with Julian last night. It's a real tragedy, as it when any cyclist is killed. It was the tight decreasing radius left hander on the top section of the descent from Waterfall. Condolences to all. Ride Safe.
