I always considered this section of road the safest of an "Outer Harbour Ride", I hope everyone recovers quickly.

Later I saw the TV news and images. Surprised that the crash occurred in this 'safer' section and that the vehicle accessed a footpath on the opposite side of the road.

Regarding the cyclists: reported that the man suffered a painful broken leg, to the alarm of his young son.

(an extract)
The man was hit by a van while on a walk with his wife and children on Military Rd on Monday.
The van then veered across the oncoming lane of traffic and hit a father and son who were cycling up the coastal road, before crashing into a power pole.
His wife made the decision to turn his life support off on Wednesday afternoon.
Major Crash officers are investigating whether the driver of the van suffered a medical episode prior to the crash.
