A bit of fun with this one showcasing a (possible) upcoming feature of the Wahoo Elemnt units that allows customisation of the alert/car icon for the Radar support.

Australia swooping season can be a nervous time on a bike. Here’s how these crafty creatures defend their territory and my tips to coexist with them for the few weeks of the year they’re on the attack!

Six Tips:
1 – If you’re in a group, don’t ride at the back. Let someone else take the hit! πŸ™‚
2 – Cover your ears – They love a good ear scratch.
3 – Cover your neck – Another scratch zone.
4 – Sunglasses – Although they almost always attack from behind. Protect them anyway.
6 – Make eye contact – They won’t swoop, or come too close if you’re looking at them.
6 – Raise a hand – That’s usually all it’ll take to keep them off your back, literally.
