    Police in Geelong believe the driver who struck and killed 77-year-old cyclist Gordon Ibbs on Sunday may be deliberately stalking cyclists. The death happened on the Geelong-Ballan road.

    Police say the car that hit Ibbs would have been damaged and have issued a photo of a similar vehicle. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers.

    OMG!!!

    As a cyclist this just horrifies me! I actually saw a woman struck down by a 4WD on Saturday morning! We get that a lot of drivers hate us, and or just don't care, and can't really see us even if we wear high vis, but to actually STALK a random cyclist?

    :(

    I wish we had separate roads, I'm sure some drivers do too.

    This guy is still out there, so if anyone is cycling around Geelong perhaps they should consider driving to another spot until he is caught, very scary, I hope there is an arrest soon.

    It is frightening - the article says the driver may be carrying something around to prod cyclists from the window too...

    My god, that's so god awful!

    My sister was telling me a story the other day, she got what is called 'smoked' while cycling .. that's when someone pulls up close to you in a car and somehow let's out a cloud of smoke so you can't see, she thought it was dry ice, or flour, but still doesn't really know .. god there are some animals out there .. makes me sad for us as a species.
