The Cycling Europe Podcast: 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 ‘Earth Cycle’ 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.
