Near the cattle grid? I had one swoop me on Sunday then sit there watching me and ignoring everyone else.

And Say What were you doing out at Lake George on a Tuesday? Are you trying to catch me again? :wink:
I ride, therefore I am.

The two I got were about 15kms from LG and then 5kms from LG. I was out there during school holidays trying to get some kms in my legs before 5 peaks. I had just returned from 3 weeks off while in Germany.

As for catching you, I dont think so. You do a gazillion kms per week. I am aiming to average 250pw for the duration of the year.

Definitely noticed a taper in the attacks, probably only the occasional late nester now.

Haven't had any go at me for weeks, haven't been riding that much either, but I've gone through known aggressive territory 10+ times in that time

Reposting as the last one got wiped in the database issue on the weekend.

Late bloomer on Namatjira Drive, Weston heading south near the primary school. Persistent bugger had about 10 attempts.

Really? Still? I only got 7 for the season (AT) 1000km per month, and the last was more than a month ago. I thought it was all over. Maybe the birds are angrier south of Woden. I know I would be... :P
