We Need To Talk About Worcestershire
For Episode 14, we need to talk about Worcestershire. The county, and its city, Worcester have been on the receiving end of much criticism relating to their apparent lack of enthusiasm for active travel.
Laura, Adam and Ned discuss the importance of local campaigning along with guests (also known locally as "Cycle Mad Morons") Dan Brothwell (Bike Worcester) and Cllr Matthew Jenkins (Green Party). There's also bonus content from Ned on how to successfully grow a basil bush.
