I found him alone at the top of the comm track calling out for his mum, so I sat with him for 1/2 hour before I put him in my bag & dropped him off at the Vet.
The Vet said he most likely fell out.
Awesome display of kindness from omacyeh i just od'd on cute too
what an amazing experience... good on ya man
...& just read the conclusion. awesome work....youre a champion. nice display of humanity
hoping to run into some roos this weekend actually...that would be cool. forecast looks really good for the whole weekend so lysty is on the cards
i nearly collected one of those wallabies coming out of a drainage ditch when i was up at churchill last time...they really blend in to the surroundings when youre moving. definitely gonna keep an eye out for those little buggers from now on. the lysty roos are awesome and ive had a couple encounters with them on previous rides so know to look out for them...impressive animals and its great sharing the trails/park with them. love it when you get a mob moving through and you just have to stop riding because theres so many of themAwesome display of kindness from omac
Franco, plenty of roos and the odd black swamp wallaby ( very timid ). around sunrise or sunset you will find so many that riding is risky.
Great weather, I'm headed there in the new few hours.
Ouch, the snake season has started.Missed a brown snake by inches, in the process of unclipping I strained a calve muscle so bad I thought the snake got me.
Add to this the aggressive roos who will ruin your shred if you so much as glimpse at hi roo gf/wives.Ouch, the snake season has started.
Spring is lovely isn't it, swooping attacks from the air and fanged strikes from the ground. Makes you feel alive!
All my sightings have been when I'm on the fire roads. Never actually seen one on the singletrack. YES THEY ARE ALL STICKS - I REFUSE TO BELIEVE ANYTHING ELSE!I always ride Lysterfield mid to late afternoon, on weekends, almost weekly for the past 3 years, haven't seen a single snake there. I assumed ppl who report seeing them ride in the morning.
That was a coke CAN you were cutting in the back of the car....right?The biggest concern I had there the other day was the old lady pushing a pram down the upper section of Hug. She freaked me out more than the wallabies!
That was a strange ride come to think of it. The woman that walked past me while I was cutting up a coke can in the back of my car probably thought I was strange.
Then 2 farmers (maybe...??) were attacking / shearing a sheep in the middle of a paddock, not near anything else.
Then the woman pushing the pram just topped off the ride...
I almost hit a family of 5 with a pram on snipe 6 months ago, was bombing down out of control. I kindly pointed out to them that it is a bikes only track and sent them off on a fire trail.A bunch of young folk, approximately 10 or so walkers/joggers, walking up the Snipe trail as I was descending on the HT, the HT doesn't pull up on a dime when it's a little bumpy so I had a Days of Thunder moment as they darted every which way but loose, I aimed straight for the centre of the track, didn't lift off, bodies were darting everywhere, readied myself for a collision but made it through, I'm out of here....Cole Trickle.
