After all the high-speed action of the last couple of weeks, it’s time to take a rather more sedate approach this week with a show all about the gentle art of bicycling.
We aren’t talking middle-aged men in lycra here, dear listener but rather more tweed, trouser-clips (where appropriate) and poncho (if wet).
Project Moonbase is listener supported. So next time you buy anything from Amazon, please go via our Amazon affiliate link. It won’t cost you anything, is totally anonymous and best of all it helps keep the show running. Thank you!
Thing of the Week
Gentlemen road-user, why not set off in style with this Pashley Roadster Sovereign? It boasts a traditionally lugged and brazed hand-crafted steel frame, a tubular crown, hand-brazed form and traditional, slender chromed steel cranks.
And for the ladies, why not set off in style with this Pashley Princess Sovereign? Along with all the features mentioned above, this bike comes with a fully-enclosed chaincase, large ding-dong bell, wicker basket, protective skirtguard, classic hub-dynamo headlamp, LED rear light, Pletscher alloy rear carrier, propstand, frame-fitting lock and pump.
