Jack Thurston, The Bike Show

London

Jack Thurston is a writer, broadcaster and campaigner. He has hosted The Bike Show on Resonance FM since 2004 and is the author of Lost Lanes: 36 Glorious Bike Rides in Southern England. He writes widely on cycling, including for The Sunday Times, Rouleur, Cycling Weekly and Cycle. Outside of cycling he’s worked in EU and UK politics for more than a decade and holds a masters degree in public policy analysis from the University of California, Berkeley, which he attended as a Fulbright Scholar. A London cyclist since the mid-1980s Jack has had more near misses than he cares to remember, though having recently moved from Waterloo to the Welsh borders he’s now more fearful of coming a cropper while out mountain biking in the wild expanses of the Brecon Beacons.
