Coronavirus Extra: 'How many times have you been hit by a car?'

Robyn has a new bike, something lots of people are turning to in lockdown to avoid public transport. She can't read maps or judge distance but has found ways to cycle safely - like using a "safety wing". Jamie loves bikes but stays off-road because, when tired, he says he's not safe. Producer Emma is a bit shocked at how many times he's been hit by a car. As always, they both also have sound advice for coping as the lockdown eases. Since recording this episode, a new series of this podcast has been commissioned. You've told us we're particularly helpful at the moment so we don't want to keep you waiting too long. Episode 1 will arrive on your feed by the end of summer. Produced by Emma Tracey Subscribe on BBC Sounds and say "Ask the BBC for 1800 Seconds on Autism" to your smart speaker.
