Take it easy on the downhills and Eyes Up!

After the terrible collision between a motor vehicle and cyclist on the southern descent of Suikerbossie (Victoria Road) this past Sunday, we urge you to take care and control your speed on the descent. About a third of the way down, there is a new set of traffic lights serving the new Mount Rhodes access road.What many of you might not be aware of is the access road on the left, which serves a few residential properties to the East of the road.

There is a warning “flasher” as you approach the traffic light,but it is still better to be prepared for the lights changing to red and give yourself enough time and road space to bring your bicycle to a controlled stop at the white line.
