The mud from is still there on the bike path this morning; Marko rang me at work to thank me for warning him about it, apparently when he got to the underpass there were three cyclists crashed in the slime, one with a suspected broken wrist. He has spent half the morning playing telephone tag between City of Buroondara council and VicRoads, nobody wanting to take ownership of the problem or clean the path. A bit of digging around and I found the council website and their email address — firstname.lastname@example.org — I’ve emailed them and asked them to clean it up.

Something must have worked — no response to my email, but riding home this evening there had obviously been a front-end-loader through and it had cleared out all the mud from the underpass — until the next time it rains…
