Belgium seems to have a collection of houses on bike lanes!

A real dodgy run along Hampton Road this morning. Near dooring by a lady loading dogs, 2 vehicles blindly reversing out into the bike lane and a tradie has artfully hidden some weldmesh behind a ti-tree, at eye-level for cyclists.
The last bit was a real heart-stopper.

Recently there were some infrastructure improvements here. This small part is still not ok. They have placed poles, which are dangerous for cyclists. In between the poles there is a gap in the road in a corner. Far from optimal.

Same place, same issue, different year

We’re going to need a bigger chainsaw – You Cannot Pass!
After a very windy and stormy night, Humevale Road was littered with branches and fallen rocks. All good until I come across this fallen tree at the end of my ride on Humevale Rd instead of near the start. So instead of turning back and going back downhill with a ton of debris all over the single lane road I decided to try and and get past it. Can’t go past at the roots as they are imbedded in the side of the hill. Can’t go past at the other end as it is over a drop off. Only option to get past is to try and climb over the tree. Made for a interesting break for the ride.
Sorry for the length of the video but this was pretty hard to do wearing cleats and no axe (or a Maiar’s staff).
