Vulpine is a young London company that makes nice clothes for cycling in. They’re holding a Christmas Fête on Saturday 1st September at the Balham Bowls Club. The Bike Show will be there, along with the cream of the London cycling ‘scene’, and hopes you will be too.
Pete Gostelow rode twenty thousand miles across Africa and passed through dozens of countries. In doing so he showed that the bicycle is the best way to travel. In this episode we continue our ride to Battersea Park and talk along the way about where he slept, what he ate, what his motivations were for making the journey and what it’s like to be back home after such a long trip. Pete also explains the inspiration he thinks ordinary cyclists can take from his long African adventure.
This is the first of a two-part feature. Listen to part one.

As November brings cold, dark cycling conditions to Britain, there’s no better time to get out the maps and start dreaming up adventures for next year. How about 20,000 miles across Africa? That’s a journey recently completed by Pete Gostelow. After crossing the Sahara, the Congo and the Namibian badlands, will Pete survive the mean streets of south London in a rolling interview? This is the first of a two-part feature.
Listen to part two.
