Come and make bicycle radio!

Thanks to everyone who’s visited the blog, listened to the shows and posted comments. Your interest and feedback is always appreciated.

And should you wish to take the step from being a Bike Show listener to a Bike Show programme-maker, the door is wide open. We’ll be back on air from 12 June!

Resonance FM (the award-winning London radio station that broadcasts the show) is a non-profit station, and I am – like every single other Resonance programme-maker – entirely unpaid for my work. The Bike Show is just something I manage to fit in around other, non-bicycle, non-radio work. …which might explain why it’s a bit rough around the edges.

So if you’ve got a passion for the bicycle and like the idea of making radio, then drop me a line. If you’re in the London area I can lend any gear you might need and advise on technique – even if you’ve never touched a microphone before. New perspectives and different personalities can only enrich the mix and several listeners have already made fantastic features for the show.

So go on…you know you want to.

Chapeaux!!

Dunwich Dynamo 2006 – Route Map!

The ultimate night ride is back for its 14th year on Saturday 8 July 2006, from 9pm to dawn on the Sunday morning.

The 120 mile route is from London Fields to Dunwich Beach, Suffolk. I have put the route online via the very cool Gmap-Pedometer site here (based on Patrick Field’s notes).

For more info on the Dunwich Dynamo see the FAQ by Barry Mason of Southwark Cyclists and a nice account of the 2005 Dynamo at rapha.cc.

The Bike Show featured the 2004 Dynamo, MP3 download or listen in Real Audio.
