This incident came to our attention today.
A local cyclist was riding back from Anglesea on Friday morning when he was struck on the back by an egg thrown from a car. The following car swerved into the bike lane just missing him tooting its horn. Fortunately he didn’t fall off but was shocked.
Riding into Torquay he thought he would check the McDonald’s car park and sure enough both cars were parked there. After photographing them he headed to the Police station opposite.
The police were quick to respond and after interviewing those responsible and obtaining admissions are looking to charge them.
The Torquay Police would be interested in hearing from anyone else who was hit by eggs on Friday, as the cyclist involved has a feeling he was not the only one.
Please pass this message on to any other cyclists you know may have been cycling in the Anglesea-Torquay area on Friday.
