City of Monash doing their bit to make what bike paths they have unusable. This is at a y-intersection, the main path curves around to the right, straight under two tonne of wood chips. Good luck to anyone coming home the other way after dark, you'll be face first in a big pile of mulch when you round the curve.

I was on a winding section of the Koonung Creek Trail, and got stuck behind 2 pedestrians, so I had 3 choices: (a) stay behind them at walking speed for at least the next 100m until the path straightened out; (b) ask them to move over to form single file (b#gger all chance of that occurring); or (c) carefully overtake. I started doing (c), moving at no more than about 15km/h, when some moron came around the next bend cycling at a speed at least 15km/h more than what was reasonable for that section of path. As he skimmed past, barely missing me, he swore at me. That guy's a first-class w#nker. Shared paths aren't for doing time-trials.
