10 April – That community feel

Download the mp3

This week Bikelove enjoys the community feel and small quiet back streets of Surry Hills.  We jumped on board the Ride Sydney iniative and trawled the many garage sales by bicycle.  This is the second year for a coordinated garage sale in Sydney but this year it’s gone national!  I for one will definitely be looking forward to next year!

Cycling in the rain was never my favourite thing but after talking with the expert I explore how to stay dry and toasty!  Who said mudguards were for wusses!

14 March 2011 – The helpful eye

Download the MP3

This week I’m in conversation with Mike Rubbo.  Mike may be better known by his blog, situp-cycle.  His blog is particularly engaging because of all the bike related videos he’s produced.  A film producer by trade, he’s captured cycling culture from around the globe.  I was particularly interested in his bicycle share videos.  His latest entry captures the Bicing scheme in Barcelona.  Phenomenally susccessful they rate cycling as four times safer than driving and have some sanguine advice for Melbourne…
