"If you are a member of BNSW their insurance policy will cover you and they may even have lawyers (I know Bicycle Network do). You can write the 3 letters of demand and then hand the whole thing over to a lawyer. From what I have heard the first…"

"I don't see the corollary. The car just gets damaged, nobody knows by whom. Regardless, it's not about fixing electronics it's about putting costs upon a dodgy business."

"Yep, the problem is that you have no contractual relationship with the insurer.  In this case, as they've already said no, you could write to the car owner and leave it to them to decide whether to chase their own insurer.  The letter…"

"Surely you jest...randomly attacking cars isn't going to help Victor get his electronics replaced.  The corollary is the car driver who is cut off by a cyclist, so decides to run the next few cyclists off the road as revenge.  Neither…"

"If getting a remedy from the insurer gets too hard, denting the car they insure on every panel will surely cost them... muhaha And ... if you are really cheesed off, you can check random plates online with RMS to find even more cars they insure ;-)"

"Thanks for the suggestion - I did ring that law firm earlier - however, they said they only handle personal injury (i.e. compensation for your injuries), not property damage."

Hi,I'm looking at doing a ride from Penrith to Katoomba on a Saturday morning - probably leaving around 06:30.I'll be riding a road-bike, so sticking to roads would be preferable.Has anybody else done this ride recently?What are the traffic and road conditions? Any ideas on travel time?(I know there was a lot of road works before - but I'm hoping a lot of that's completed by now - is it possible to ride on the road yet?)Cheers,VictorSee More
