Getaway attempted, failed.

Police saw the cyclist on Spry Street just before 8am on Tuesday morning and tried to approach the man, who is wanted for outstanding warrants.

The man then took off on his bike and rode into traffic on Sydney Road where he was struck by a car.

The cyclist suffered head injuries and has been taken to Royal Melbourne Hospital under police guard.

Slightly off topic, but a friend recently had his twin-cab stolen from his driveway. Thief left a bike-shaped object in its place.

Shaken but stirred.

Did not getaway by bike, but according to the article has been spotted with a MTB on one of the trails. Very local - Fairfield escapee, seen in Kew East.
