Bogged down in Keilor

Posted by Neil Penman on 14 November 2010 in English (English)

Rode my bicycle along the Maribynong bike trail to Keilor to get some street names. There is a new conservation reserve "Afton street Conservation Reserve in Moonee Ponds which should be explored more. All the fords on the river were impassable due to the rain so I had to go the long way round through Brimbank Park to Keilor Village where I at least managed to get a good coffee. On the way back I tried to take a path along the west side of the Maribynong and got the bike hopelessly bogged. The path kept disappearing into the swollen river and tracks further higher up were churned up by trail bikes. I ended up pushing the bike up to the Ring Road and using that to cross back to the east side.
