15 January 2007: Women bike messengers and a ride through a very long tunnel

Women bike messengers might cut a better figure on the roads than their grungy, bearded and tattooed male counterparts, but are the girls better at their jobs than the boys? The answer is yes, if a handful of London’s women bike messengers are to be believed. For details on the upcoming Roller Races, look here.

We also have Hugo Gladstone riding with the Stourbridge Bicycle Users Group on a ‘suburban secrets’ adventure that takes in the 2.3 km Netherton canal tunnel. Wooohh!! Echoooohh!!

And if you want to help the Bike Show and all Resonance fm’s unique broadcasting stay on the air…. don’t delay!

You can donate to our emergency fund quickly and painlessly here. Remember, all the programme-makers and engineers on Resonance are unpaid. We need to raise £60,000 now to pay for basic things like renting our studio (a damp and airless cave) and powering our antenna (a rusty coathanger tied to the top of a hospital). It’s not rocket science but without donations from listeners, it will all come to an end very soon.

    Great show. Would it be possible to add a small map or may be more pictures for those of us across the pond considering a trip to the UK?
