*Invest in Independence with Yarra BUG Radio during 3CR Radiothon*


3CR Community Radio 855AM invites its listeners and the Melbourne 
community to Invest in Independence at Radiothon 2012 from 4 - 17 June 
<http://www.3cr.org.au/news/invest-independence>.  The station is 
financially supported by our listening community. This year we are 
trying to raise $210,000 to cover operating costs.

Buy your share of the media and donate to 3CR this Radiothon. 3CR's 
progressive alternative coverage of social, economic, cultural and 
political issues has never been more relevant.

So with that in mind, Faith, Chris, Val & Steve from Yarra Bicycle Users 
Group Radio have planned a*extra special program between 10am - 11am on 
Monday 11th June*. It's the Queens Birthday holiday, so kick back, brew 
a cuppa or two, have a leisurely start to your holiday and listen to us!

*The Guests*
We'll be interviewing local Melbourne bicycle celebrities Peter Santos 
from psbikes <http://www.psbikes.com.au/> and Joyce from CycleStyle 
Australia <http://cyclestyle.com.au/> as our extra special guests on our 
3CR Radiothon program, talking about their love of cycling and what 
inspires them.

That's not all, we've have bicycle poetry from Eleanor Jackson 
<http://eleanorjjackson.com/>, Steve's musings on cycling for fun & 
profit, Melbourne bicycle news, bike moments and of course, a discussion 
of bicycles & politics, since the simple act of riding a bike in 
Victoria seens to have become quite political of late ... so there maybe 
a few soapboxes or two ... not forgetting fun, mirth, bicycle tunes and 
cycling culture insights.

*Giveaway 1:*
The lovely people from Allegro Bikes <http://allegrobikes.com.au/> have 
provided the option of *one beautiful bicycle* from their range. As 
people come in different sizes and opinions of what they prefer in a 
bike, the lucky giveaway winner will have the option of either:

W1 (retail $799): A racier step-through, the W1 combines 7005 aluminum 
tubing with a cro-moly fork and Shimano drive train to create a nimble, 
comfortable bicycle for running around town.


W3 (retail $799) The robust commuter of the W series. Double-butted 
cro-moly tubing, cro-moly forks and a Shimano 3 speed nexus hub gear 
makes the W3 a simple, reliable step-through for scooting across town.


City 3 (retail $795): The City 3 is the most affordable of the range, 
sporting the same frame and forks but with Acera parts. (Racks not 

*Giveaway 2:*
Have a little rider in the family? Or one on the way? psbikes have 
kindly donated a Byk <http://www.psbikes.com.au/>, a Australian 
ergonomically correct children bike, made in aluminium so it is super 
light and a lot easier to ride than other children bikes. The giveaway 
winner has the option of any bike from the ByK range, so what  ever age 
their kid/grand child or friends kid is. (Retail price from $200 to $599 
depending on what size/age the child is)  See the Byk range at: 
*Giveaway 3:
*That's not all - we also have Treadlie <http://www.treadlie.com.au/> 
two-year x2 subscriptions (within Australia) to give away! Brought to 
you by the publishers of green magazine, Treadie is like no other bike 
magazine in Australia, filling a gap in the market for a passionate and 
discerning readership.
