MON MON 14:15 On Your Bike b00yqg3z (Listen) MON The Most Civilised Conveyance MON The 19th century velocipedes were heavy, slow and expensive MON before an English engineer James Starley developed the high MON bicycle or penny farthing which overcame the difficulties of MON gearing and weight. Although these 'high bicycles' were MON dangerous and unstable they were eagerly taken up by MON fashionable young men who formed cycle clubs and took to the MON open road with gusto. MON In the 1880's the safety bike arrived, it was very similar MON to the bikes of today, with a chain drive and smaller wheels MON anyone who could afford it could easily ride. The women who MON defied the dress codes of the day to ride in culottes or MON bloomers contributed to the emerging movement for women's MON suffrage and liberation. MON Artists, musicians and writers found inspiration on two MON wheels and the socialist Clarion Cycle Club cycled to spread MON their message. Then, in World War One, cycle battalions went MON to France with bikes adapted to carry kit and rifles to the MON front. Between the wars mass production delivered bikes MON cheap enough for everyone and fuelled by the outdoor and MON fitness movements cycling entered into a golden age, the MON working classes now had the freedom of the open road. MON After the war people once again took the road in freedom on MON the only transport available in the years of frugality. The MON 1960's brought prosperity, mass car ownership and a MON fascination with modernity and speed that didn't include MON cycling and bikes were left unused and rusting in garden MON sheds. Then a group of young people in California developed MON the mountain bike and again cycling became fashionable. A MON fashion for fitness was back on the agenda and there were MON the added incentives to reduce pollution and congestion in MON cities and seek more environmentally friendly ways of MON getting about. Today the bicycle is once again in the MON ascendency. MON Presenter: Martin Ellis MON Producer: Simon Evans MON A Pier Production for BBC Radio 4.

MON Rory Bremner returns to Radio 4 with a new weekly comedy MON show that takes one big contemporary question each week and MON attempts to answer it as satirically as possible. MON Regular panellists Nick Doody and Andy Zaltzman are joined MON by comedian and impressionist Mel Hudson and this week's MON guest experts are author, comedian and politician, John MON O'Farrell, and the British correspondent for Die Zeit, John MON Jungclaussen, as Rory asks "What is Britishness?". MON Rory's mantra is that it's as important to make sense out of MON things as it is to make fun of them - only then will people MON laugh at the truth. So this deconstructed "quiz" has only MON one question each week, because that question is so big, MON there's no time for anything else. Expect a mix of stand-up MON and sketch combined with investigative satire and incisive MON interviews with a diverse range of characters who really MON know what they're talking about.
