Cycle path around the Kingston foreshore

Innovation 19 February 2012 4

There is an article in the CT today about calls for cycle path work around the Kingston foreshore.

After riding in that area a few weeks ago I would have to agree.

It was impossible to work out how the cyclepath from the wetlands connected to the otherside of the foreshore.

Worse, when I did finally get back on a cycle path along Canberra Avenue, I hit a huge bump caused by a tree root that destroyed my back wheel beyond repair and even broke contents in my pannier.

(That cycle path is a perfect example of why some cyclists prefer to ride on the road rather than on the cycle paths).

The whole area needs to be fixed up quickly.

How on earth did you end up on Canberra Ave from the wetlands? Congrats anyway . . you must have ridden through Fyshwick and lived to tell the tale.

I did ride through Fyshwick. The semi’s were particularly exciting….

Yup, I wouldn’t hold your breath though – 14 months later and this other section of the lake ride hasn’t been fixed either: http://the-riotact.com/canberras-cycle-path-repair-shame/41684

Was going to photograph it and send it in, but – you know – priorities.

They’ve blocked a section in Kingston Forshore solely, it seems, to discourage people using it. WTF?
