Spring is sprung, the roads and trails are drying up, the sun is sometimes shining and the birds are singing in the trees. Unfortunately some of the birds are doing more than just singing, here's a handy map to keep a track on where the vicious blighters are lurking...

Here at Oxygen Cycles we are hapy to donate cable ties to use as anti-magpie helmet spikes. Please use the comments section to add any useful tips you have, personally I use the "sprint like crazy" approach*.

Other note, big excitements coming up. Amy's Ride is coming to town on November 1. Register early and take advantage of our offer of 10% off Parts and Accessories and 15% off services for Amy's Ride participants. Inside Line are back in Willunga this Sunday, head down to Loud's Hill Rd if you want to see the gravity lovers turn Mt Terrible into Mt Awesome-to-the-Max. And a reminder to all veteran races to get in as many hill climbs as possible this month, the SDVLCC Oxygen Cycles Twin Peaks race is only six weeks away!

*would work better if I packed a sprint sprint like Mark Cavendish

another tip is to ride with a friend. That way you've got twice the eyes and can use some team work to defend yourself.

or my favourite is squirting it with water, but this only works when you have lots of water- otherwise you end up thirsty..
