Episode 037: Simon Parker – Britain By Bike

The travel writer and cyclist Simon Parker first appeared on The Cycling Europe Podcast in February 2021 when he talked about his โ€˜Earth Cycleโ€™ TV programme. He returns to discuss his latest project; an end-to-end cycle around Britain in the midst of a global pandemic. His main aim was not to clock up the kilometres but to meet the people and hear their stories. He told his own story in a weekly column for The Daily Telegraph and here he looks back upon a cycling staycation to beat most others.
