Queen's Baton Relay: Baton report from Bangladesh

  • 24 October 2013

With a population of over thirteen million people Dhaka is one of the most densely populated and congested super-cities in the world. Mark Beaumont meets a group of cyclists who hope to change the face of commuting.

In our second special video report Mark joins the arrival celebrations as the baton received a warm welcome in the capital city, then hits the roads on two wheels to meet a group of enthusiasts.

The group, named BDcyclists, have grown from a handful of students to 25,000 members and now have an ambition to create Dhaka's first cycling lanes.
