Hurt NSW cyclist recovering in hospital

A cyclist seriously injured in an accident with a truck in Sydney is in a stable condition in a hospital intensive care unit, friends say.

A cyclist who was pinned under an Australia Post truck for almost an hour on a busy Sydney road is in good spirits, according to his partner.

Anthony Platts-Baggs was trapped under the truck at the intersection of May Street and the Princes Highway in St Peters on Wednesday morning.

Paramedics worked for almost an hour to free the 26-year-old, who was taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

His partner on Thursday updated the Dulwich Hill Bicycle Club, of which Mr Platts-Baggs is a member, stating the popular cyclist was still in intensive care but in a stable condition.

"He is in good spirits," Rebecca Vella posted online.

"We will know more in the coming days."

Fellow cyclists delivered their well wishes via Facebook following the accident.

"Not good to hear of any cyclist coming to grief like this, let alone one of our members," Bill Kokas wrote.

Greg Pankhurst posted: "That sucks but super glad to hear he's alive."

The 59-year-old truck driver involved in the crash was not injured.
