A cyclist fractured his collarbone after his bicycle ran into a metal rod lying along the West Coast Highway. He was part of a cycling group that was going at around 40km/h when he hit the debris, causing his wheels to lock before he was sent flipping and crashing with bone injuries.
He could get up and walk but had to undergo surgery. His $10,000 bicycle was totally destroyed just because of one metal bar, which may have been left behind by one of the heavy vehicles that frequent the highway.
Risky siol. If you want to cycle then you better be careful.
