The month of June marks RADIOTHON at 3CR Radical Radio - this year’s theme is ‘Sound on for Solidarity’

On this weeks program we have a very short intro due to Chris losing her voice, but never fear, let's kick off Radiothon time at 3CR and Yarra Bicycle Users Group Radio needs your support!

Celebrate everything you love about riding your bike and supporting active transport by making a donation by 30 June 2024. No donation is too small, like most of the best things in life, small efforts add up to radical changes! All donations over $2 are tax deductible 

Since 2008 Yarra Bicycle Users Group Radio has broadcast on 3CR in naarm Melbourne, shared hundreds of bike moments, spoken to countless guests, interviews, rides, cycling events, alongside raising awareness about campaigns and advocacy you simply won't hear anywhere else in mainstream media

Thank you to Nicky Page from Radio Adelaide for the Step Away from the Car series

Kidical Mass: Children want to ride bikes to get around independently. All the research confirms this, and it is the driving goal of a growing movement called Kidical Mass.  It’s being nurtured in Adelaide by a parents group called Middleground Motherhood. Their logic and their strategy are first class and Sarah Cleggett is the founder. 

Are Bikeways the way to go?: Commuter cyclists love long bikeways, but NOT when they are shared with pedestrians, strollers and dogs on leads. James Laing leads Australian cycle planning at Stantec and has some of the answers to this important urban planning dilemma.
