Series 6, Episode 2: Chris Boardman

Chris Boardman became the picture of British cycling in 1992, when he won the country’s first olympic cycling medal in 72 years.

Decades later, while his face is still synonymous with British bicycles, these days it’s because he’s on crusade to make them safe and accessible for all. As Policy Advisor to British Cycling, Greater Manchester’s Cycling and Walking Commissioner and the chairman of his own bicycle brand, Chris Boardman has dedicated his life to changing the way we view bikes.

This week, Chris Boardman speaks to Krishnan about giving up his car, pushing through the barriers of change and why Covid-19 may be the catalyst for reshaping Britain’s cycling identity.
