I managed my bike ride again this week but just did it yesterday. It was only a short ride as the rain was threatening and as it was it started to rain while I was on the ride. The ride I did was the Mitchell River Walk.
This ride is in Bairnsdale and is only a very short ride. Not energetic at all. You ride up one side of the river, cross over the river on the Lind Bridge and then ride down the other side of the river.
The bridge is named after Sir Albert Lind a well known name in the district.
Along the banks of the river you will find various signs which have been erected to acknowledge the work done by the various schools in the revegetation of the riverbanks.
One aspect of the ride is seeing the roost of the flying foxes. These flying foxes have been a bit of a problem in Bairnsdale and there was some concern that they could spread disease. This article from The Age in 2011 explains the problem.
