Hopefully you listened to the recent BBC Radio 4 Women’s Hour programme dedicated entirely to women’s cycling, and set at the London Bike Kitchen. If you did, you will have heard LBK Director Jenni Gwiazdowski talking about their work teaching people to repair their own bikes – or maybe you’ve heard the Wheel Suckers’ podcast Jenni runs with Look Mum No Hands’ Alex Davis, which I was on that same day.
You can imagine, being in the LBK space, and being on the podcast made me want to know a whole lot more – how and why did Jenni set up LBK in the first place, and what do they do? Why’s she podcasting? What’s her superhero secret origin story? There’s only one way to find out – by asking her!
Listen to us here, or download directly from Soundcloud.
Watch Jenni teach Woman’s Hour presenter Jane Garvey to change a puncture, and get a good look at the London Bike Kitchen too, here on the BBC website.
To find out more about the London Bike Kitchen, head over to their website, and follow them on twitter, instagram and facebook. There’s information about their Women And Gender-Variant Night here, and the WAG twitter and facebook too – and if you, like me, love the LBK’s work, you can support their work through donating to them, or buying things from their online shop.
