Swooped once, I noticed it after a loud tap on my helmet, turned around and waved and shouted a few f words at the magpie and it flew off, gave me a scare.
I actually was avoiding the main bike path as theres another one that always swoops at macaulay park up the road.
If you use the bike path in this area, be aware they are out to get you, haha!
All the way to the city is fine, its just this particular area.
Repeated attacks as I crossed the road and continued along the centennial trail. Very persistent and aggressive bird. Used a stick to discourage strikes, but came very close on each pass. Seems to have been swooping since early September. Be careful crossing the road.
