No more relaxed bushwalking in Tidbinbilla

By Zan 6 January 2013 28

Whilst reading Tim the Yowie Man in yesterday’s Canberra Times I was horrified to see that the powers that be are changing some trails in the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve to be shared by bicyclists. We can no longer walk in Mt Stromlo, so now they want Tidbinbilla.

Roos better watch out – they do not have bells on their bikes.

What’s Your opinion?

Cyclists.

It is really hard to walk in Stromlo without a banshee coming up behind scaring the wits out of us, hence we no longer go there.

Will that occur in Tidbinbilla, only time will tell.

I think you’ll be safe. Tidbinbilla seem to be promoting this as a friendly family ride to look at the wildlife. If it becomes a banshee run I’m sure they’ll shut it down.

^This from a person who claims they want a ‘robust’ discussion.

Banshee- Noun
(in Irish legend) A female spirit whose wailing warns of an impending death in a house.

Maybe you meant “Jabbawocky”?

I can only echo what Deckard says; thanks for bringing the trails to our attention. I’ll check them out next week.

Don’t forget to use your bell.

If they find any dead roos, we will now know who to blame.

Sorry but IMHO most ‘banshee’ biking types are likely to be getting their adrenalin rush on the awesome single track designed for bike riding not the wide open fire roads that walkers and horse riders can use…

OP said they were no longer allowed to walk at Mt. Stromlo…I pointed out that it is not the case. There are lots of trails that walkers, horse riders and bikers can share – these are not the designated MTB trails (single track)…the trails I refer to are the fire roads that existed well before Stromlo’s designated bike trails…walkers and equestrians have not lost access to trails at Stromlo. Anyone venturing out onto purpose built bike trails is putting themselves or their horse or the biker at risk. On any other trail the biker MUST give way.
