Cycling in China can be hazardous, but a 16 year old Student, Wu Dan, was the victim of a particularly unusual and grisly hazard last week, when he was injured by a corpse thrown from a speeding car.
Police said the body was that of a woman, who had herself been hit by the car and that the driver was trying to dispose of the evidence.
According to his family Wu Dan was hit by a package thrown from a passing car, which turned out to have the remains of the dead woman inside. The cyclist was knocked unconcious by the impact and was understandably said to be very upset by the incident which occurred in eastern China.
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
