Cycling is a pretty environmentally friendly activity, right? One fewer car on the road, reducing carbon emissions and saving the planet! But when you dig a little deeper, it becomes apparent that riding bikes isn't all that green! Bar and gel wrappers chucked on the roadside, punctured inner tubes sent straight to landfill, and don't even get us started on the convoy of cars surrounding a bike race! In this week's GCN show, Manon and Dan ask what we can do to make the sport more green?
