Riding through grief: Val and Faith are joined in the studio today by Associate Professor, Craig Fry, of Victoria University. We share our bike moments before running through some news including; Yarra Council’s decision on the Rushall Reserve shared path, the women’s Olympic road race cycling crashes, the CX Grand Prix at Essendon Fields on the weekend and the upcoming census.
Craig introduces us to some of the research he has done into grief and bike riding after losing his own father and noticing the positive effects his bike riding had for him. We talk about the reasons this might be hppening and some of the stories other riders have shared about this as well as Craig’s own story, which he wrote about in Ride: A Memoir to My Father
We finish up with some upcoming events including Archibike, an architetural tour of Brunswick, another Pushy Women training session in Yarra and a reminder about the regular BUG rides listed at bikefun.org.
