Cycling in Melbourne Australia
Nice day for a ride today I expect you all got out as well. Noticed a lot of helmets with cable ties on this morning as I rode along the Dandenong Creek Trail. This got me thinking that it is magpie swooping season soon.
We have a map on this site but it does not get nearly as much activity and the DSE one does. Looking at the DSE site they will reset the 2010 map any day: http://www.dse.vic.gov.au/plants-and-animals/native-plants-and-anim...
Have fun and open up the eyes in the back of your head.
Its magpie swooping season whenever the magpie says so :) Some are early, some are late, but I'm keeping an eye on one along my commute, saw him on Sunday morning and he's looking all sleek and shiny and testosterone-charged and I'm sure he was checking his diary for what day it was...
As for the cable ties, never found them effective myself. Interestingly, attaching anything to your helmet renders it no longer compliant with the Australian standard and thus illegal to wear, but as with many parts of the law, it aint observed and it aint enforced.
Not many hits located on the map just yet.
There is another map but this one seems a little better. According to the reports my riding areas are clear (I hope)
yeh I got done at the usual place today.
Between the tennis courts and the station.
Lucky I had my helmet on !
We have a pair here that we feed by hand and they still bomb the crap out of us in breeding season. I don't think they have any chicks this year, or they're later than the others, because they have not bombed me yet.
Little buggers... just like they're football collegues, untrusworthy !! hahha.
