How do we make cycling – as a sport and a way of life – as diverse as possible? That’s the central question in Rouleur edition 106, the Empowerment issue. And it’s the theme of this podcast.
We hear from cycling coach Thea Smith on how her club is trying to attract more women, non-binary and trans cyclists through the gates of the venerable velodrome in London’s Herne Hill.
And from Will Butler-Adams of Brompton on how the bike industry has a vital role to play in rebuilding society after the pandemic.
