Tell us about your bikes
My main ride to work bike is a Mongoose Randonneur, I simply love it. I have my first bike, a Learsport mountain bike as a back up (I know people hate Learsport, but it was what got me into biking and this one is quite a nice bike.)
About Me:
I'm an artist who works as a quarantine officer for a living. I run a small gallery with my wife on Old Canterbury Rd.
I am the web master for AshBug and an acredited Ride Leader.
I ride to work at Rosebery most days and social rides on weekends.

Tempe reserve bike path blocked by Salination pipeline construction.

On my morning commute from Dulwich Hill to Rosebery, I pass through Tempe reserve to the footbridge over the canal to link up with the cycle way along Qantas drive. This morning my path was blocked by a chain mail fence. I came close to hitting it.
No where does there seem to be an attempt to accommodate bikes with an alternative path, only a pedestrian way over the rough parkland.
This is a major connection between the Cooks River cycleway and the route to the eastern suburbs, including the Uni of NSW.

I just find it unbelievable that they can do this without warning, I ride this route 3 to 4 times a week. What can we do? I will ring their hot line number but if they are as abstract as there web site I'm sure they will just ignore my complaints. More later

Hi Leonardo, welcome to the site!
You should set up an AshBug group here, I know of at least one other AshBug rider here.

Thanks for the welcome, Ashbug has a pretty active socila email list running through the web site.
Might join the Inner West group though.
