The BBC is currently broadcasting a 10-part history of the bicycle, that ‘most civilised of inventions’. The bicycle has not only provided speed, freedom and the ability to engage with the world around us in a unique way, but it’s also played a fascinating role in society by affecting work patterns, social activities, women’s rights and even the way some wars have been fought (to say nothing of helping the Famous Five out in several adventures). Find out more and start listening on the iplayer (the first episode of On Your Bike is available for three more days).
