This week on Metropolist: Cycling in the City

metropolist white

What is it really like to cycle in a city? Are the hills a problem and how does one do it in the heat? Is the commuting by bicycle lifestyle in Cape Town reserved for those who live close to work or on certain sides of the mountain? How does one even begin to get by bicycle from Bellville or Athlone or Khayelitsha to Cape Town CBD or any other place of work  in the city?

During Transport Month in 2013, we featured interviews with cyclists from  Johannesburg to California to Lagos about their experiences as a cyclist in different communities and cities. Listen to our show this week as we continue sharing the stories, and chat to Andrew Wheeldon, Gareth Pearson and Dinika Govender about the in’s and out’s of cycling in Cape Town, and what Cape Town could learn from the rest of the world.
