    Very sorry to hear that. Pleased the driver was caught.

    I am sure Ian was an inspiration to many other cycle tourers and adventurers. A life well lived.
    Around the world on a bike? You must be psycho!

    RIP Ian. Hoping there's only bicycles where you're at now.

    Cheers to a GREAT Ride!

    Odd, When a man uses a car to hit a cop it's a attempted murder with deadly weapon. Man hits a cyclist, is aslap on the wrist. Wish Driver who hit cyclist spend 10year minimum in jail and lose their license for life!

    We had a recent trial over a guy who killed a kid with his car while drunk. Judge found that even sober the motorist couldn't have avoided the kid. Ok then.
