2019-12-19 - Adelaide - Rider killed by truck

Posted on
  • I just found out that one of my semi-regular riding buddies has been killed by a truck in Port Adelaide. I was told to not watch the news as it's pretty confronting.

    I didn't know him outside of cycling, but he was 59 years old and a very strong rider.
    The first time I rode with him and his group of regulars was a baptism of fire, and he pulled at the front relentlessly.

    RIP Ian

  • RIP aussie rider

  • RIP Ian

  • Wow, that's very close to the house of my partner's sister in Largs.

    RIP Ian

  • Rest in peace

  • We held a memorial ride today. His wife and some family members were there at the start and saw us off. It really hit me right in the stomach when I introduced myself. Her first name is the same as my daughter. About 20 guys rode in the group, and there were quite a few tales about him and his riding. He inspired a lot of people to give their best on the bike.

  • Horrible. Also FFS using the word 'accident' in the news story when someone's been charged with dangerous driving.

  • Sorry to hear that, Pascal. He sounds like an excellent rider. RIP.
