I've just spent the last few days in hospital after having a bicycle accident on the Epping Rd Bike Path. I got home today and thought I should post a warning to everyone on Sydney Cyclist.
I was travelling North-West on the Epping Rd Bike Path approaching the corner of Centennial Ave and Epping Rd. As you can see from the picture, there is a telegraph pole on both sides of the path leaving a narrow (but usually adequate) area to ride between. There were really strong winds the evening I was riding home and I think that the orange mesh has blown across and caught my pedal, ripping the bike to the right and sending me face-first into the concrete.
I had several fractures to my eye socket and now have a couple of titanium plates there to hold my face together. It seems to be healing quite well and I'll be back on the bike soon.
This is where the accident happened... Please be careful...
