Cycling Experts Jeroen Dirks Jeroen Dirks is always cycling and a journalist. Or he is a journalist and always on the bicycle. He made a few radio programs about the heroes like you and me that are on two wheels all day: people cycling to work, to school or just for fun. Dirks started the first podcast about normal cycling: de spaak (the spoke), which you can find on the website of Dutch broadcaster NPO. As a sociologist he likes to listen to stories of other cyclists that have one thing in common: a general sense of being free to decide where to go, when to go and how to go.
