Support the radio station

That supports the bikes that support the poetry!

It is 3CR radiothon tomorrow, so listen in to the Yarra BUG (or on www.yarrabug.org/radio) and they might even play some of these dear little BIKE POEMS, which are clearly everyone’s second or third favourite element of this blog!

These were the only poems about bikes where nobody got smashed up or killed or it didn’t go for FOREVER. I really have to reconsider my bike poetry and its general upbeated-ness or otherwise.
