Preston by Bike with Gavin Renshaw

Jack goes to Preston, Lancashire to ride with artist Gavin Renshaw. They ride out on some of the City of Preston’s bicycle infrastructure before heading for the wild uplands of the Forest of Bowland. Along the way they talk about cycling in Preston and Gavin’s work with In Certain Places, a long-term project that is bringing artists and creative thinkers into the process of city planning and urban development.

  1. I think you’ll enjoy this book:

    Old Wheelways
    Traces of Bicycle History on the Land

    By Robert L. McCullough

    Primarily American sources, but perhaps the cultural associations with a movement to appreciate landscape adds interest.
    Probably a good read for your landscape-architecture-minded associates.

    Keep up the broadcasting and podcasting.
