Incident type: Close pass/Bad driving
Location of incident: Westlink M7, Dean Park New South Wales 2761, Australia


Two boys on motorbikes entered the M7 cycle way and proceeded to ride directly towards us on our side of the cycle way. We slowed and came to a full stop to avoid collision. The boys were not wearing helmets, nor was there any sign of registration plates on the motorbikes. Either way, they should not have been riding on a cycle way. The issue of motorbikes illegally riding on the M7 cycle way is becoming more of a problem and there are many reports of cyclists encountering them regularly.
