Peter Walker (pictured, above) is a political reporter at the Guardian newspaper. He set up the Guardian’s bike blog and his new book puts the case for a healthier, safer and more people-friendly nation. In short, a Bike Nation. In conversation with Jack Thurston, Peter talks about his past life as bike messenger, how his views on cycling have evolved and why he believes now is a critical tipping point in Britain’s long and chequered history of cycling.
Bike Nation: How Cycling Can Save the World is published by Yellow Jersey Press.
