A 70-year-old cyclist who is fighting for his life after a "random" stabbing attack is a lifelong Portland resident who was on his way to the local RSL, police say. 
A young woman allegedly stabbed the  man in a dispute over a mobile phone in a western Victorian town.
Portland Crime Investigation Unit Detective Sergeant Jason von Tunk said both the man and the woman were Portland locals.
"He was on his way to the RSL riding his [push] bike," Detective Sergeant von Tunk said. 
"He has no relationship with the accused. It was a random attack."
The man was riding along Cape Nelson Road in Portland​ at 9pm on Friday when he was approached by the 21-year-old.
She asked to use his mobile phone and when the man refused police say she allegedly stabbed him repeatedly.
The victim staggered to a nearby home to raise the alarm. The man was stabbed in the upper body and was taken in a critical condition first to Portland Hospital but then flown to The Alfred hospital in Melbourne.
A spokeswoman for The Alfred said the man's condition was  remained critical but stable.
The Portland woman was arrested by detectives early on Saturday morning. She will appear in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
Cape Nelson Road is used frequently used by cyclists as it has rolling hills and is a 25 kilometres round trip between Portland and the Cape Nelson lighthouse.

Portland woman accused of stabbing 70yo cyclist after phone request granted bail

Posted 49 minutes ago
A Portland woman, who allegedly stabbed a cyclist in an unprovoked attack, has been granted bail.
Police said the 70-year-old victim was riding his bike along Cape Nelson Road in Portland, in south-west Victoria, on Friday night, when he was approached by Shardey Harrison, 21, who wanted to borrow a mobile phone.
When he told her he did not have one, the prosecution alleges Harrison stabbed the man in the neck in an unprovoked attack, causing critical injuries.
The court was told she then called her brother for help and allegedly hid the knife before she could be arrested.
She has since been charged with intentionally causing serious injury and was granted bail in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court yesterday.
The court heard the 70-year-old victim has since been taken off life support and is expected to make a full recovery.
