Recent Near Miss

  1. On a ride from Cairns to Port Douglas I came around a blind corner near Rex lookout only to be confronted with an inpatient driver attempting to overtake another vehicle towing a trailer going uphill around a blind corner, where of course there were are double lines. its also a narrow seaside drive.

    Fortunately i was riding at a safe speed to quickly slow down, they saw me, and the inpatient driver pulled back into the correct lane and an accident was averted.

    Definitely a close call and the last thing you want to see coming around the corner at you!

    It just highlights the importance to have your sixth sense switched on when riding.
