was driving down western road the other day and happened to come across a hipster dad type with a grey beard, riding on a brown off the peg fixed with white wheels, brakeless, no foot retention and from what I could tell a heavy gear ratio, looked like 50t/16t sort of thing. he wasn't the most observant rider either.
anyway, if anyone knows him or sees him could it be pointed out he's pretty deadly and not in a good way. likely to crash in to a child type of deadly
This is him, just managed to catch up to him by this point. He has a hivis thing and a light,so probably considers himself a safe rider.
Using your phone whilst driving (light just turning green?) isn’t exactly safe (or legal)....

passenger took the photo as we were trying to show he didn't have a front brake but thanks for the tip.
haha yeah seen him about!
I've had him try and race me a few times along Western Road...
