£2 billion to get you on a bike, but is the money going to the right places? & the Design Museum's "rallying cry for clubbing"

Will a £50 bicycle repair voucher, or even one on prescription from your GP, be enough to get you cycling? Boris Johnson's calling his £2bn package to get people onto two wheels "the most ambitious ever" but campaigners say it pales in comparison to the money going on roads. We speak to London Cycling Campaign's Simon Munk, who's welcoming the investment but warns it's not enough to lure people away from cars. 


Also, Design Museum director Tim Marlow tells us why there's "always pressure to put on a banger" as it re-opens with a blockbuster exhibition charting the history of electronic music. He explains how they've recreated the nightclub atmosphere at a time when clubs are closed, and why the stakes are higher when making a comeback after the coronavirus shut down. The Evening Standard's given the exhibition a five star review, calling it a "rallying cry for clubbing."
