Extremely happy to see a police officer with a radar gun booking speeding sports cars ascending Eagle on the hill on Sunday Morning, climbing to the Bollards is a great ride but its scary when the only thing between you and racing Posches / speeding P platers / and MotorGP riders is that thin concrete divider.
Thought you were going to be writing about cyclists getting pinged for speeding on the downtrack!
So happy to see this! Have seen convoys of porsches going very fast up greenhill rd sunday mornings. Some even using the correct side of the road. The bollwell and westerfiled kit car sort of things have been hamering corkscrew and lobethal roads as well.
Lucky not many of us can get our speed up to 60k/hr going up the hill.....going down however is a totally different matter.
What's the speed limit there ?
For most motored vehicle users that use the road the speed limit is the speed you can do without totally losing traction on the bends
Guilty as charged your Honour. Downhill on a bicycle that is.
Isnt it 80?
No it's 60.....quite clearly stated on the speed signs. There those funny round things on the end of poles on the side of the road.
It used to be 80, when it was a busy road with a crap load of traffic and trucks. Now its a quiet road apparently its only safe for 60.....
I had to shake my head in disbelief on the decent, as i just came out of the Eagle Park MTB corner a black sports car was coming up the track (above 60km/h) so i made the "Slow Down" sign with my hand; (despite hating speeding cars i dont want to see someone hit with a massive fine). As he passed me the driver gave me a dirty look and then accelerated harder, straight into the radar's line of fire.
