… you ride into the city to be guest on The Bicycle Show even though it’s blowing a gale, 6C and raining cats and dogs. Then you decline all offers of lifts home in other people’s gas guzzlers. Bravo Rod Charles, historian, writer and cyclist extraordinaire!
Rod’s appearance was the first of two appearances to discuss Volume 2 of A Whirr of Many Wheels: Cycling in Geelong. This volume chronicles cycling as part of the social structure of Geelong from 1914 to 1945.
Watch out for podcasts of this and future episodes of The Bicycle Show when John gets them all set up on The Bicycle Show website.
