Andy White in the 3CR Studio

Faith and Val are joined in the studio by Andy White of Fyxo fame. After reminiscing a bit about the old days, talk turns to the final weekend in June, traditionally Melburn Roobaix weekend. Andy talks about the first ever Melburn Roobaix, the way the event has evolved and the amazing community of people it brings together every year while Val and Faith reminiscence about Roobaixs, a nd costumes, they have enjoyed in the past. (And if you're inspired by Andy's suggestion of a Mad Max theme then check out this recipe for a DIY rust look bike frame)

This year Roobaix weekend has grown to a Weekend of Wheels and kicks off on the Friday with Made.Australia. The Australian debut of the Made handmade bike show featuring over fifty exhibitors at DISC in Darebin is paired with the Bicycles Roadshow, an opportunity to drag your special bike out of the closet and bring it into the light. 

Tune in to hear all about Andy's Weekend of Wheels and don't forget, the 3CR Radiothon kicks off in June and we need your donations to help keep the Yarra BUG Radio Show on the air for another year. You can make a tax deductible donation here (Make sure you choose Yarra BUG Radio Show from the dropdown)
