E22 BICYCLES

Bruce puts on his bicycle clips. Simon becomes a spokes-man


This time it's life on two wheels as Simon and Bruce investigate the history and tragedy (sorry, MAMILs) and the general story of the bicycle. From its bone-shaking beginnings to the oddest tandem, you'll discover much more about the bike than you ever wanted to know!
