    Slow down Bermuda. Sad news, another life gone. We need to slow down on our roads . I have to make this comment; I was riding along middle Rd yesterday, just of Cobs Hill Warwick., all of a sudden I felt a breeze and a bike flew between myself and an oncoming car. The bike rider came so close to knocking off of my bike it was frightening. The car slowed to avoid colision. The bike kept moving ablivoius to what he had almost caused. 1 minutes later reaching Lindos supermarket he was parked at the tool shop next door. This boy almost caused injuries to myself and the driver of the car. My thoughts were they die for no reason other than speed. Sad.
