26th May - Marrickville Bike Bus

This week I catch up with the Marrickville Bike Bus on their daily commute from Marrickville to Martin Place in the city. The Bike Bus is a fantastic way of getting to work if you want to commute by bicycle but are wary of traffic (hell, that's all of us isn't it?). The Bike Bus literally starts at Henson Park, Illawarra Rd at a few minutes to 7 every morning and makes scheduled stops picking people up along the way. It heads through lots of pretty back streets through Newtown and then Redfern... a social and speedy way to commute! For more information contact or ring/sms 0403 821 374.

12th and 19th May - Academic Perspective

This week I catch up with Dr Matt Burke a research fellow of the Urban Research Program in the School of Environmental Planning at Griffith University in Queensland. I talk to him about the impact our urban design has upon the way we live and move (or not move very much as the case may be...). He had some really interesting things to say about our towns and cities and the knock on effects urban design, planning and road policy has upon our way of being... It was such an interesting interview that it spanned over 2 week's shows... so enjoy!

5th May - Celluloid Cycles

This week Bike Love seeks the thrills and spills of Celluloid Cycles, a bicycle film extravaganza which took place in Melbourne earlier in April. I caught up with Tim Sheedy the man behind the event to talk about his love of bicycles and films. Highlights for me was a film Red Light Go... looking at NYC bicycle messengers and the mayhem which surrounds their Alleycat races and fixed wheel tastes. And The Collective, which looks at free style riding with some footage that literally blows you mind! (Tim is the chap in the grey hoodie)
