Cycling Lake Biwa Japan with Wheel Women

Monday, 2 December 2019 - 10:00am to 10:30am

Val and Faith take to the studio on an unseasonably cool December morning and share our bicycle moments which involve hail and jacarandas. We take a look at a few news items including a research released by Victoria Walks which find traders in shopping strips oversestimate the number of customers that arrive by car, and the ongoing saga of doping in cycling and Russia. 

We then play an interview recorded with Tina McCarthy of Wheel Women about her most recent cycling trip to Japan, cycling The Golden Route, Biwaichi, the Japanese government's interest in more cyclists visiting Japan and the logistical issues still to be grappled with. 

We finish up with a reminder that the Road Safety Symposium is coming up in March 2020.
