I APPLAUD the athleticism of the cyclists competing in the recent plethora of events. I applaud also the people inspired to dust off their velocipedes and pedal their way to health!
We have a mass of cyclists in tight, sterilising lycra to share the roads with for this limited period.
Can we please have a world class pole dancing event in Ballarat?
Imagine, if you will, seeing scantily clad maidens practising on stop signs and give way poles when waiting at intersections.
There should be no less interruption to traffic flow, I'm certain. Pole dancing has a bad name - anyone can pedal harder than everyone else in a given race but not everyone can defy gravity with such style as these much maligned true athletes.
Let us be famous for giving them the fair go!
