Shownotes

A new study commissioned by the Development Bureau will re-open the idea of harbourfront cycling - but will the government approach rise above its past failed attempts to connect the city's harbour with bikes? We chat with Martin Turner, chairman of the Hong Kong Cycling Alliance, on harbour cyclingh, design processes, shared bikes and the oppresive "pleasureground" regulations which stop almost all the fun!
