Europe: The Once and Future King of the Road

Monday 24 July 2006 21:00-21:30 (Radio 4 FM)


Mark Stephen discovers the importance of the bicycle as a global barometer of social, economic and environmental change.

Over 200 years after its invention, it could be that the humble bike will once again be king of the road in the developed world. Alongside an increasing number of commuters, Mark Stephen braves the cycle lanes of London.

He then travels to Denmark to discover whether a cycling revolution in the UK could ever match the number of cyclists who take to the streets of bicycle-friendly European cities like Copenhagen.
