Lake Ginninderra bike path is poorly maintained. The ride is a bumpy one.

The bike path is shared. There is a lot of traffic around the lake. We need to look after each other in the COVID times.

  1. I hate the bumps! I’m a grown woman whose been riding since I was 5 or whatever, but those bumps scare me! I ride a picnic bike so it’s not like I’m going fast! I’m still so nervous to come off tho!

    1. I think the paths should be good enough and safe enough for all cyclists of all ages and abilities. We would like paths that are comfortable to ride for all types of bikes.

  3. Agree about the poor condition of some sections of path. Back in February I had a bad crash there when I hit a tree root that had pushed up the path and fell heavily, face first, breaking my nose,badly grazing the right side of my face and loosening and chipping (but fortunately not breaking) my teeth
