It has been brought to our attention that some video footage of an alleged road rage incident was broadcast on the Channel 9 News bulletin on Saturday evening, 25th of June.

The vision and captioning indicates the involvement of Dulwich Hill Bicycle Club riders in this event. We wish to clarify that DHBC's involvement is entirely limited to our presence on the road at the time the incident took place. No DHBC rider was involved in the alleged altercation at all.

This footage is approximately 2 1/2 years old. A number of our riders were stopped at traffic lights on the Princes Highway at Kirrawee. The white vehicle was stopped at the lights beside our bunch when it was approached by a rider in dark coloured kit. This rider was not riding in a DHBC bunch nor is this rider a member of DHBC.

DHBC does not condone any form of violence and maintains the need for respect by all road users. Safety is our priority.

We are extremely disappointed that Channel 9 broadcast this footage without seeking comment or clarification from us. It is our intention to seek a correction from Channel 9 in this regard.

Should you have any questions please contact me directly.

Douglas Kirkham
President
Dulwich Hill Bicycle Club
