7 July 2008: 50 Quirky Bike Rides

A ride along the splendid London end of the Grand Union Canal with Rob Ainsley, London cyclist and author of 50 Quirky Bike Rides, a new book about weird and wonderful places to go on bicycles in England and Wales. We visit a canal that passes over a motorway and take advantage of a little known rule that allows bicycles on certain parts of the London tube network.

This week’s show was broadcast from the excellent Southwark Lido (pictured below – more pics here). Get there while it’s still open.

Play on links below. Other file formats (e.g. Ogg Vorbis) over here.

  2. I have always loved biking but for the last couple of years the increase in high speed traffic scares me. How ca I find some bike friendly roads.
