I was there. It wasn't a bad turn out considering the miserable weather.

Sorry I missed you.

Did anybody else see the bloke riding the bluebird with $5 bikeshare lid and a blue skinsuit? Parts of me shrivelled up just looking at him.

I see there is another rally on this Sunday the 29th at midday, this time at the “steps” in Gipps Street Abbotsford in a further attempt to get our mate Ted to change his mind about the bicycle infrastructure budget.

Why on a Sunday? There are no pollies there on a Sunday, TV and newspaper newsrooms are at half strength and too many people have family things to get on with.
