Biking Around The Lake
Images from my regular weekend bike tours around the lake.
Bilder von der Radtour um den See die ich fast jedes Wochenende mache.
Captain Cook Memorial JetThe 147m high water fountain welcomes me at the lake.
Around Lake Burley GriffinBike paths are everywhere in Canberra. This is one of the paths that lead around Lake Burley Griffin. Bike riding is my new main hobby right now.
National CarillonA bit further away is the Carillon. A gift from the Brits. It can be played by live players and sometimes I stop by and listen for a while. There is a cafe there as well.
My bike can be seen leaning on the tree. It is a Gian Yukon.
Debris from the flooding carried into the lake is littering on the beach.
Scrivener DamThe dam is spilling after all the rain we had recently.
We had a lot of rain. For the year it is already twice as much as average and for december it is 5 times the average.
Black swansA common sight on the lake. At this spot people seem to feed them. So there is a lot of them.
The council tries to block it off but cyclists just push the barrier out of the way all the time.
