Default Line across bike path in Perth

Spouse caught something on the news last
night about some yobbos putting a line
across the bike path that runs along the
freeway here that offed a rider. Anyone
know more about this?

The dark ages cometh...

naah, just some moron that watches one of theose pommy cop shows on the
ABC. they did the de-cap motor cyclists trick again on inspector barnaby
and thick-side-kick again.

It was funny actually because they played the scence about three times
and by then it was exceedingly clear that if was a fake head ontop of a
real head; very, very, deep shoulders.

I am unable to parse your comment. Are you saying the report was that the
perps that ran over a rider put an arrow on the bike path pointing to the
spot in the road where the rider was run down? Or what?

The same thing was done on a bike path just near my house. About a
foot off the ground so the cyclist who hit it came off his bike...
don't think his injuries were too bad. It's just a ****ing stupid thing
to do.

Similar thing occured recently on the Upfield path here in Melbourne.
The authorities, local newspapers & council were contacted et al. The
fcuktards responsible should be strung up by their goolies. If they had
any fer starters...

OK, so I'm not a humanities major...

The (garbled) story I got was that so youths put a rope
(or wire or twine or string or cable or...) across a
bike path in Perth somewhere. This caused a rider to come
of his/her bike. Said rider apparently noticed a car speed
off with 4(?) laughing yobbos in it. I have been unable to
find out any more about this story. Spouse now has reservations
about me heading out on my bike.

Hope this makes more sense....


Cheers,
DeF, BSc.

I had a guy go by and drag about 6 2" thick tree limbs out of the woods and
put them perpendicular across the bike path. He claimed his dog did it.

All because when I passed him on the first lap and his dog chased me, I
said 'Sir! Why is your dog chasing me?'. That's it.

Guy didn't realize how close he came to needing some serious rehab, since I
was much bigger than he was, weightlifter, jujitsu, and a few other martial
arts. Dumbass. I rode up to him and introduced myself and told him I worked
out at the local gym and asked him his name. He started stammering and
forgot who he was, lol. We parted "friends". I don't ride the bike trail
anymore...

Haha, yeah. Sorry, was partly just teasing, though couldn't figure out what
'line' was, but now I do. Hope it stops happening. Stay safe out there!

No problem - I'm just glad I didn't use the word
"guy" instead of "line", that could have lead to
all sorts of confusion...
