Coronavirus Extra: 'How many times have you been hit by a car?'
Listen now
Robyn has a new bike, something lots of people are turning to in lockdown to avoid public transport. She can't read maps or judge distance but has found ways to cycle safely - like using a "safety wing". Jamie loves bikes but stays off-roead because, when tired, he says he's not safe. Producer Emma is a bit shocked at how many times he's been hit by a car. As always, they both also have sound advice for coping as the lockdown eases. Since recording this episode, a new series of this podcast has been commissioned. You've told us we're particularly helpful at the moment so we don't want to keep you waiting too long.
