This week we present a two-part interview from Alan Parker OAM about early days of bicycle advocacy in Victoria, working with Keith Dunstan and Brian Dixon, formation of the Bicycle Institute of Victoria, Geelong and Melbourne Bike Plans and why such a far reaching plan didn’t progress into the 1980s. Other topics include Toscana 2013 UCI World Road Championships, DIY brake maintenance, weekly bike news & advice about those not-so-delightful swooping magpies.
