Ride of Silence for fallen cyclist
DOZENS of cyclists came together for a Ride of Silence yesterday through the streets of Brisbane to pay tribute to a father-of-three killed while riding his bike.
Cyclist safety advocate Cameron Frewer was hit and killed in a horrific road accident last week while riding on the Sunshine Coast.
The Courier-Mail last week revealed letters he had penned just days before his death warning of unsafe conditions for cyclists.
A group of cyclists came together through Brisbane’s CBD yesterday to pay their respects Mr Frewer.
The route went along Alice St, George St and Turbot St before turning back onto Edward St. The Ride then carried onto Parliament House at William Street where a silent vigil was held in his honour. Organisers said it was not a protest ride, rather “legal road users as bicycle riders, using the roads legally to make their way around the city and Valley”.
