These podcasts are created for broadcast during the Roundabout Swindon programme on Swindon 105.5 (www.swindon1055.com)  between 9am and 10 am on Friday morinings.  The idea is to increase the awareness of the cycling opportunities that exist in and around Swindon, or to tell the stories of some of our local cyclists.   If you have a story that you would like to tell on air.  Please contact me, Lew Lawton, on 07387 269456 or drop an email to cycle [dot] medic [at] btinternet [dot] com.  I’d love to hear from you.
