Ride to Work Day Wednesday 13 October & magpie alert


We had walk to work day a couple of weeks ago and coming up this Wednesday (13 Oct) is Ride to Work Day. Click on the link for more info.

The community breakfast in Canberra is at Glebe Park so make sure you drop in for your free breakfast on your way to work.

Watch out for the magpies (not all of them swoop, but there are a few pesky ones about) they're defending their nest so my tactic is to put my head down and pedal as fast as I can to get away. I met a particularly persistant one on the Barton Highway on the way to Yass a month ago; I think he must have bruised his wing because he hit my helmet at pretty high force on his second attack! And there was a rather angry one yesterday on the bike path around Lake BG just past Acton Ferry Terminal towards ANU having a go at everyone who rode by.
Luckily I met a lot of nice magpies in the O'Connor ridge bushland. It's quite wonderful when they fly alongside as you ride along.
