Ride of Si­lence for fallen cy­clist

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS -

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”.
