The pleasant weather in Cape Town calls for cyclists to grab their bikes and head out into nature, but they have been encouraged to remain cautious on their route near Constantia. This comes after a rider was attacked along the Constantia Nek road, and his bike was also stolen.
According to the Cycling safety campaign, Stay Wider of the Rider, the attackers emerged from a Silver Quantum and were said to have passed the cyclist, before coming to a halt in the middle of the road, forcing him to attempt to pass on the left.
“They attacked him and tried to force him into the vehicle but he fought back causing him to fall down, they then grabbed the bike and sped off.
“The attack has been reported and the cyclist managed to recall the registration number. Thankfully the cyclist is ok,” the Facebook post read.
The public has been urged to look out for the bike in the following photo as it may be advertised for sale. It was described as a Canondale Supersix EVO with Marvic wheels with a Garmin 1000 attached.
