As an ill child, Beryl Burton was told never to exercise. And then she met a young cyclist called Charlie: "The first year I pushed her, the second year I rode with her, and the third year she was at the head of the bunch"...

Loved it. Usually hate Radio 4 dramas but when it's beryl I have found love. Esp at the moment. Cycling is about people. Bez was the best.

The story of wondering round Leipzig or berlin and the head police officer knowing her by name and getting the sports minister to sort it all out but yet when she gets back to west yorks the coppers say 'never heard of her, i prefer athletics'.Perfect

Thanks for the link and heads up!

I can listen to it today by following the link - but it appears to be both time-limited and copy-protected. My guess is you'd have to find a "ripping" program for streaming material to capture it. It's a nice little show.
