I used to be a 612 ABC early morning listener until some years ago the compare started to give cyclists a hard time, not just once either. So what is happening there now ?

Ah yes, I meant was there something good on today? It's a BQ mouthpiece on The Squeaky Wheel, and after Spencer had his hissy fit with me over the ABC's lawyers banning any mention of a worldwide news event when Richard Pollett's killer was found not guilty (we were due to talk about the 1.5m petition in June which was because of Richard's case) I have also found them more reluctant to look at cycling as objectively a they used to.i wasn't being purely sarcastic Foo :)

Yup every Saturday morning as we are driving to the starting point of our ride...usually interesting conversations across a wide spectrum of cycling topics.

5am Saturday (or Sunday) is not a time, it is a sleep-depriving construct.

5am Sunday morning is the time to start the return leg from some 200+k ride from your Brissy front doorstep.
I can recommend Kin Kin Pub for the sleepover. :D

incidentally, Spencer and 612 in general have proven they are devoid of calm and considered objectivity....and nothing more than slaves to emotion and populist opinion. Good on you Aunty.

Just as an aside, if anyone on here is ever up that way and needs somewhere to rest, there's always a spare room at chateau de LDR :) .
