A Quarantini with Cycling UK

This week we share a Quarantini with Keir Gallagher, Campaigns Manager for Cycling UK. We've all experienced less traffic during lockdown and as we emerge into a new world, we wanted to hear about how more people might be encouraged to keep cycling. Keir talks about the need for properly funded cycling infrastructure in our towns and cities so that everyone will feel safe enough to think of cycling as their first means of transport.

As usual we bring you our usual round up from Bristol, UK and around the world.

Music:

My Corona Home - ("Kokomo" Parody Song), Jon Pumper

BBC Sports Theme Megamix, Abandoned Rugs

Hosts: Melissa Chemam and Pommy Harmar

Producer: Pommy Harmar

Opening music: Hot Flu, The Old Bones Collective
