TweetFacebookThieves mar bike rideTherewere no major medical emergencies or injuries resulting from Sunday’s Sydney to Gong ride, with all of the 10,000-strong pack arriving at the finish line in one piece, albeit a little sore and thirsty.

Eight riders were treated for minor injuries at the end of the ride but none required hospital treatment.

A large police presence along the course, and particularly at the intersection of Elliotts Road and Carters Lane near the Thomas Dalton Park entrance, helped maintain a flow of both car and cycle traffic.

Although crowds on the day were extremely well behaved, an incident overnight put a dampener on the event for a small number of riders.

Thieves reportedly broke into the ride camp in the early hours of Sunday morning, making off with cans of coke and alcohol stolen from at least four corporate tents.

Wollongong police are now investigating the matter and are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
