Discuss cycling as transport and the issues involved in commuting to school, work or to the shops.
A cyclist in his 70s was fortunate to avoid serious injury last week after he was hit by a car and then left on the side of the road, police say.
The force of the collision in Caulfield South left the 76-year-old man with several fractures along his body.
Police believe the man was riding his bicycle on Narrawong Road about 8.30am last Wednesday when a red hatchback car collided with him.
The driver did not stop and continued driving along Burrindi Road.
The cyclist was taken to The Alfred hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.
Police have released images of the car involved in the incident, a spokeswoman said, in the hope someone may be able to shed some light on the driver's whereabouts.
Police want to speak to anyone who may have seen the car near Burrindi Road before the collision.
They have also called for the driver to come forward.
Anyone with information is asked to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
