For once pre-recorded, this week’s show features Eben Weiss, aka Bike Snob NYC, in Melbourne for the Melbourne Writer’s Festival, as our studio guest. Eben shares possibly the most awesome, and spooky,  bike moment ever before the conversation turns to more mundane things such as magpies, drop bears spring and the building of the St Kilda Rd bike lane.  Turns out Val knows a thing or two about magpies.

Conversation turns to New York and our guest fills us in on riding bicycles in the big apple, the marketing of bicycles, bike lanes, NYC police and blogging. So engrossed were we that we ran waaaaaaay over time and weren’t able to include the usual round-up of news and events. Sorry about that.
