“No bike” signs have been put up on the northern entrances to Kama. This surprised me. There is no mention of policy change on the ACT Environment website or in the Molonglo River Reserve Plan. No explanation apart from these small signs.
I started at the car park off William Hovell Drive. It can only be approached from the west. William Hovell Drive is a 90 km/h road and has a good on-road bike lane from the west and a horrible one from the east. North of the car park is The Pinnacle Reserve Offset Area and to the south the Kama Nature Reserve. They are separated by a short stock underpass, freshly painted with street art.
There are two entrances on the north side of the Kama Nature Reserve, and both are of the step-through type and padlocked with a chain to stop cars. Both gates now have a sign that dogs and bikes are not permitted.
I will leave the photos so that you can see what the area looks like. It would make a nice family walk on a sunny winter day. But leave the bikes at home.
