Magpie attack on Cyclist - Beach Road, Hampton VIC 3188


Riding under a stand of tall trees as I was heading south on the cycle track just before the Sandringham Yacht Club driveway, I heard a loud squawking noise behind me and felt pecking on my helmet just above my left ear. The bird nicked my ear with its beak, drawing a small spot of blood. I waved my left arm and shouted loudly - thankfully it flew away immediately. The track was fairly straight and I kept full control of my bike, not falling off.
