Friendly warning about Centennial Park at the moment

Centennial Park has been very busy for the last two days. I guess it's mostly about the "Holiday and Travel Expo" they're set up for this weekend, but today for example there's also some type of junior rugby league carnival on for little kids. The bottom-line is there's a lot of drivers unfamiliar with the park not paying attention to the cycling lane divider or the speed limit . . I even saw a ranger book a lady yesterday for speeding.Just a friendly warning in case you're riding through.See More

Hi Michael
Sure we can have a ride someday. Sound as so you'll leave me for dead though. My last tour du Léman was done 25 years ago........not quite as fit anymore but still pedaling around.
