Theyre a bank..they can do anything they like.
I would be surprised the Adelaide council doesn't have rules about erecting temporary structures like marquees.
I would have thought that blocking paths ect. would not allowed I suppose the rowers think they have exclusive use at times.
I think it was some sort of food festival.
It was a festival -- saw some of the preparation on Friday. Recommend that you contact ACC which is supportive of cycling, and would not like obstructions across the shared path of the River Torrens Linear Park. Let me know how your complaint goes.
Yeah, that's nonsense. Quit a bit of traffic on that path, must have inconvenienced many.
It was set up for the end of the Greenbelt half marathon.I did not see how bad the obstruction was but i suspect that it was done ( whilst not ideal ) to maybe slow bikes down as there would have been a lot of runners on the track and signs as we as cyclist know don't always work.
Yes, no one should ever obstruct cyclists' free movement on a shared path. Stopping cars for a cycling event, on the other hand, is, of course, fine.
Elder Park is for everyone. Just because we have the privilege of being able to ride our bikes through there doesn't mean no one else can enjoy it - and they didn't stop us from using it, by the way. It's called sharing.
Its not a bike path as much as the lycra clad, pro tour wanna be's, who think its ok to travel at 30Km/Hr + on a shared path, would like it to be.
