13 November 2006: On a Bickerton in China, the Sideways Bike and cycling with disabilities

This week’s studio guest is none other than David Thurston, my very own dad. A London cyclist since the 1970s when he lost his driving license, he explored China in the early 1980s on a Bickerton folder and is now discovering that with Parkinson’s Disease, cycling is more fun than walking.

Also featuring an interview with Irish nutty professor Michael Killian, inventor of the revolutionary Sideways Bike (pictured) with independent front and rear steering, news of Sheldon Brown’s struggle with Multiple Sclerosis and an report by Alex Murray on a high end off-road wheelchair.
