Hi all, just a word of warning for anyone who rides in Bonython Park, in particular the fairly new section of path which goes past the horses in the olive grove. This morning my bike slid out from…Continue
"Another word of warning.............with the Stereosonic concert thing setup, cars are using the bike path amongst the olive grove to get to the car park. Keep your eyes open for cars coming the other way."
"I commute 40 km a day using the Linear Park through the city as much as possible because I believe the chances of having a nasty are proportional to the time spent in the firing line. In other words I accept that there are a lot of bad drivers on…"
