    As a bike racer Isla Rowntree took on almost every discipline in cycling, rode professionally for the Raleigh MTB team and won the British national championships in cyclocross on multiple occasions. But it is as a bike designer and entrepreneur that she's made the biggest impact, transforming the market for children’s bikes. The high quality kids bikes she designs have given a generation of children the best possible start to a life of cycling.

More than just bikes

Jack's show is just about the best way to learn about the world of bicycles. It is highly informative for those new to cycling and those who have been riding for a long time.
I especially enjoy the bicycle touring episodes as they take the listener on journeys to places less visited.
Easily my favourite podcast.
