This afternoon while participating in the weekly Tuesday SOB ride i had an unusual near-miss, on the return leg to Gawler from Port Waikfield. I was dropped ( due to my poor fittness at the moment ) by the main group as we left Woma RD, aprox half way back to Curtis RD I heard an unusual noise coming from the expressway, I looked to my left and to my suprise a run away 6x4 trailer with two canoe's came hurtling off of the embankment directly at me, thankfuly is was able to avoid it and it slammed into the fence on the opposite side of the SOB behind me. Not an event you think you are going to encounter while riding on a purpose built bike way 20m or so away from the expressway !
not sure as I didnt hang around but the trailer was still moving rather quick when it hit it !
I didn't see any damage when I went past, but then again, I could not see anything and it was pitch black on my return.
I was surprised how many people were on the path without lights that time of evening... ( Not good )
And there I was worried about the low-flying Orions heading for the airbase...Glad I skipped this ride fellas :p
thats pretty much what I said ! LOL
