Bastards cycling comes to Canberra

johnboy 7 March 2009 5

Figures on these things are hard to come by, but legend has it the local sex industry has never enjoyed such a happy time as when the “masters games” came to Canberra a few years ago.

The lads and ladies of negotiable affection will therefore be thrilled by an ABC report notifying us that the Australian Masters Road Cycling Championships is coming to town this September and October.

    “Cyclists aged 30 and over will compete in the six-day tournament at Stromlo Forest Park.

    ACT Sport Minister Andrew Barr says the event will boost Canberra’s economy.

    “The event is expected to attract upwards of 700 participants and a couple of thousand spectators,” he said.”

I thought Fyshwick’s biggest boom was the huge rural protest here in the 80s, I think it was the 80s. We were in a taxi heading to more drunkeness when the dispatcher on aerial broadcast to all cabs a request from “the establishments” in Fyshwick that they bring no more “rural gentlemen” out there as it was standing room only and they would be busy until the sun rose.

All good moral National Party voters too, I bet.

BY JB in the OP: “lads and ladies of negotiable affection” LOL. Never heard that term before, think I’ll use it a lot in future.

So economically speaking, Canberra has to be really screwed before it gets better?!

I think that johnboy needs to realise that

“All Masters Cyclists are Master Athletes, however, not all Master Games Participants are Master Cyclists.”

The Masters Games include some rather different sports such as hill climbing, dog trialling, and lots of team sports for netballers, rugby players and the like to come away for a drunken bonding session. As well as the age range being as low as 25 for some events, trying to draw a direct comparison between the sex industry’s success with cyclists is drawing something of a long bow.
