A Wheely Good Listen

By Wheely Tots

Topical bike chat, tips, advice and Q&A. A must listen for anyone who walks or cycles.

Join North London charity Wheely Tots as they launch their first podcast.

Wheely Tots believe all children, families and communities should be healthy, confident and resilient. We approach all this social integration and community development stuff through four themes;

planning (eg routes)

comfort (physical/mental health & wellbeing)

mending (keeping the kit working)

doing (the cycling or walking)

Epiosde 5: What the space race really means for us
Lydia talks to Zemichael https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/club/profile/8791/tottenham-cc and https://arcageneration.org/cycling-club/ and they  - for reasons only known to themselves  - have decided we're going to the moon and back....The shortest one way trip is 240,000 miles....so quite honestly we're all up for a challenge and all that.....but maybe next year.....! David talks to Merna about http://wheelytots.com/spacerace/ and end up having a chat about unconscious bias and we hope that the chat gives you pause for thought. And thank you to you, our listener, reporting that your bike shop was out of Spoons premium grease but fortunately a nearby cafe had loads so all was good.  We will attempt another advert....as you asked about how best to clean a bike......  If you need a song then try this....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCm6gRHINqA ....

Episode 2: Insight into volunteering (part 2.....the view from the other side)
In Episode 2 we talk with David and Rhiannon who both felt the need to respond to Episode 1.  Our new words are "learning agility" and "value exchange" which, with hindsight and as I type, sound very corporate....probably because they are.....  That said it was a lot of fun making the podcast and I think we need to borrow some microphones as the sound quality is a bit ropey but we hope you enjoy the listen! Keep your topics coming in as we've had some brilliant suggestions for future content and your feedback will help get these podcasts more polished!

Episode 1: Insight into volunteering (part 1)
In Episode 1 we talk to Stephanie and Angela, who both decided to use their new found free 'furlough' time to volunteer with Wheely Tots. Volunteering from home without meeting anyone face to face is a unique and interesting situation which has turned out to be pretty good fun too.
