Season opener: Time Travelling

As Mark Cavendish wins the world championship road race for Britain for the first time since 1965, we’re back in the saddle for a new season. On this week’s show, a trip back in time. Blue Door Bicycles is a new bike shop in south London with a long history. Owner David Hibbs has been documenting a treasure trove of cycle trade artifacts from when the shop was a family business known as Central Cycle and Auto Stores. Listen too for a chance to win tickets to the Bicycle Film Festival. And some momentous news from Bike Show host Jack Thurston.

    Great start to the season. Just donated my £10 to Resonance by way of thanks (wish it could be more). Congratulations on your marriage & best wishes for the future :)

    Very glad to have you back.

    But I did smile when I heard hills in London being mentioned during the piece on Blue Door Cycles. Hearing some cyclists in the capital bang on about hills, they’d cry if they joined me on my commute 😉

    As a Canadian I must say that I am happy as ever to be looking forward to more of your great shows and rolling interviews (which happen to be my favorite). To pick a favorite show….wow that could be hard, the coverage of topics that you offer us, your listeners, is vast, entertaining and always a pleasure to the ears.

    Fantastic work Jack!
