Great Cadence

Loving the Pod, so good for commuting or those afternoons doing the gardening. Guests are all class.

What you didn’t know about cycling

I am loving this pod! There are so many gems in each episode - I love hearing the guests’ stories that aren’t from the typical press interview style questions. You can tell that Jethro has a genuine connection with the guests which helps to bring out these interesting answers. So far my favourite eps are Luke Plapp (love the part where he talks about the different tracks in Australia and how they adapt their TP strategies) and Kate Wagner - I never would have learnt about her interesting career if it weren’t for this pod - you always hear about the riders but it was cool to find out how the world of cycling journalism works behind the scenes. Love it!
