Around The Bay In A Day cycling event entrants were deliberately rammed by what’s been described as a car load of hoons in the event held yesterday.
Up to ten riders were left cut and bruised on the road as the car sped from the scene. They were travelling in a pack on Nepean Highway at Mt Eliza when the group Mornington Peninsula riders were struck.
It is alleged the car at first drove past and the occupants verbally abused the riders before returning from the opposite direction ten minutes later and veering into the bike lane at an estimated 60km/h.
The road rage incident is being investigated by Police and not only caused injuries to the cyclists, but thousands of dollars in damage to the bikes.
