Magpie attack on Cyclist - A2, Glenwood NSW 2768
First time I’ve even been attacked by a magpie while cycling and must be some honor to have been attacked by the most aggressive magpie in Australia! Got attacked along the tree line past the overhead pedestrians bridge towards to the overhead bridge you can cycle over to the M7 cycle way. He also got me on my way back to Bella vista. Have to be careful as there are also people waking with their dogs along the same route and it’s a bit dangerous getting attacked while trying to avoid the pedestrians. Might have to totally avoid that way and get to the M7 cycle way via Norwest boulevard. Got a small cut near the ear.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 21 Picnic St, Enoggera QLD 4051
Riding my bike fast outbound towards the bridge, and the Magpie swooped quite low and I ducked as a reaction and banged my lip on my handlebars. My lip was sore, numb, swollen and bruised. I crashed into the grass and slowly Picked up my bike as the magpie stared at me from above on the tree. Many cyclists went passed, I guess it was just unlucky that I got picked to be victim. I slowly Rode off extremely cautious of any magpie Calls and noises. On the way back through that path I was fine.
Injured:Yes
