CroggyWhat is a C R O G G Y?

A croggy is a ride on the handlebars of a mates push bike.

Now we understand Croggy is not a Melbourne bit of trivia, but we do remember as Melburnian's either having a croggy or giving a mate a croggy around the back streets of Richmond.

Urban Dictionary says croggy is to recieve a ride on the handlebars of someone's bicycle, whilst they are pedaling. Giz a croggy! I would appreciate it if I may ride on the handlebars of your bicylce whilst you pedal. 'croggy' = short for 'crossbar'.

Technically the picture above from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is not a croggy because the woman (actress Katharine Ross) is not on the handle-bars. We reckon this is a "dink"or possibly a "crossbary"where the passenger is on the cross bar.
