    Special Guest Miiro Michael - Founder & Chairman of Masaka Cycling Club.

    Special Guest Miiro Michael - Founder & Chairman of Masaka Cycling Club.

    "For us, the first aspect is for these girls to build their self-esteem, believe in themselves, believe they can change this world, believe they can be mentors & examples to other young girls."



    Since opening G!RO in 2013, we've had the pleasure of meeting some amazing and brilliant people. Miiro Michael of Masaka Cycling Club is quite honestly one of the most inspiring people we have met & it was an absolute pleasure to speak with him on this podcast.



    Having suffered with Polio as a child, leaving him with disability, Miiro has had to overcome challenges and adversity throughout his life, and is now a Human Rights activist based in Masaka, Uganda. Seeing the potential and power of cycling, he set up Masaka Cycling Club with the simple goal to see men, women, boys and girls of all ages and all abilities, build their self esteem & allow hope in their lives where previously there had been none.



    As well as nurturing the next generation of professional cyclists, Miiro's passion is to see cycling break down social barriers of disability, women's rights, gender based violence & education in Uganda - one bike ride at a time! Miiro is an incredibly inspiring man, and we were honoured to spend some time with him on this podcast.



    April sees G!RO launch its Communities Building Communities campaign, where we set out the goal of increasing monthly donations to Masaka Cycling Club. More information on that to follow, but this podcast serves as the perfect starting point to understand and see the work being done there in Masaka. Be sure to check out the previous Masaka podcasts with Ross Burrage & Michael Delagrange. (links below)

    For more information about Masaka & how you can support with G!RO, head over to: https://girocycles.com/pages/masaka-cycling-club



    An inspiring and significant listen.

    Equality in Cycling | Special Guest - Louise Gibson

    Equality in Cycling | Special Guest - Louise Gibson

    “I wanted to make cycling more normal, and the biggest thing is that I’m not ok with the fact that little girls might not have the same opportunities as their brothers, just because they were born a girl… and that is what spurs me on”



    In this episode we sit down with the amazing Louise Gibson, who - among many other accolades - was the face UCI’s #choosetochallenge Campaign, which coincided with International Women’s Day. If you have a quick look at Louise’s social media, it doesn’t take long to establish what she is about. For the past few years, Louise along with the amazing Internationelles have been actively flying the flag & standing up for Gender Equality is sport, and in particular in the pro-cycling ranks! Having completed the entire course of the Tour De France in 2019 with her Internationelles squad, and again covering the same distance virtually in 2020, Louise is making her voice heard, and people all over cycling are listening!



    A few weeks ago, social media went into meltdown when Louise shared a pie-chart that showed the pay disparity between the Men’s and Women’s winners of the season opener Omloop Het Nieuwsblad - €16,000 for the men and €930. This set in motion a crowdfunding page that raised enough money to ensure the female winner of the following week’s Strade Bianci received the same prize money to the Men’s.



    Its actions and stories like this that make this conversation with Louise not only an enjoyable one, but a significant one too.

    Coach's Corner | The Basics of Training With Power with Danny Roberts-Clarke

    Coach's Corner | The Basics of Training With Power with Danny Roberts-Clarke

    "The main thing with training is for you to be Consistent, you're not doing too much, you get enough Recovery, you're sleeping well & you're eating well, that's 95% of training. Too much attention gets put on the 1%ers and not enough on what really matters"



     In this first episode of Coach's Corner, Jordan Addison & Jamie Olsson sit down with Cycle Coach & G!RO Sensei Danny Roberts Clarke to learn more about the basics of Training With Power on a bike. Danny has many years experience coaching athletes & riders of all abilities all around the globe, and in this podcast we cover some of the basics of Power & here from Jordan and Jamie's experience working with Danny as a coach. 



     Its a really insightful listen, and one that hopefully many of you will find an interesting dive into all things Power.  If you have any questions at all, or if you are looking for coaching be sure to give Danny a shout over at danny@nero.bike

    THE POWER OF HOPE | Masaka Cycling Club Update With Ross Burrage

    THE POWER OF HOPE | Masaka Cycling Club Update With Ross Burrage

    “One of the most powerful things for a young person from this region is to develop a bit of hope; a bit of hope in their heart…Which might sound a bit dramatic and a long way removed from our lives, but for a young kid there that is living day by day, trying to find a feed, its survival every day there. So to create a bit of hope is the ultimate reason for doing this”



    In this latest episode of the G!RO podcast, we check in with our good friend Ross Burrage. Ross started Masaka Cycling Club a couple years back in the Masaka province of Uganda… One of the poorest regions on Earth. His work there and founding of the Masaka Cycle Club Foundation, along with the support of cyclists around the world, is doing significant things in the lives of all involved with the club. G!RO has been supporting Masaka for over a year now, and it is a true honour to be involved in some small capacity.

    Having recently partnered with Team Amani, Masaka is taking great strides in developing homegrown cycling talent, with the dreams of seeing its riders compete on the world stage. The impact this would have on the local region is such an exciting prospect, and one that is worth every effort made to support the club.

    It was great to sit with Ross again to get the latest update on what is happening on the ground there. And also to hear how we in the UK can support what is happening moving forward. The key area of support of monthly donations of as little as £3 a month! For the price of a cup of coffee, you can contribute to the incredible work Ross and the team are doing. All the details for donations as well as the Jersey Fundraiser can be found here https://girocycles.com/pages/masaka-cycling-club

    Please go and support… Every single £ goes to Masaka! We will be keeping you updated as to all the developments as the year goes on.

    Also in April we will be launching a Masaka Campaign here in G!RO, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

    We loved catching up with Ross, and know you will too.

    So sit back, grab a brew & Enjoy!

    The Power of Collective Action | G!RO Talks to Michael Delagrange of Project Amani

    The Power of Collective Action | G!RO Talks to Michael Delagrange of Project Amani

    "When someone else - completely outside from me - does something together in this network that benefits everyone, I get this sense of swelling pride that I am part of something bigger. It sounds cliche, but I am a disciple about Collective Action these days... thats the coolest thing about this project so far"

    Mikel Delagrange is a Human Rights Lawyer who works at the International Criminal Court in the Hague. Having spent much of the last 10 years in many parts of East Africa, Mikel saw an opportunity to explore the potential of partnering together cycling communities across continents to create and nurture real opportunities for riders in Africa. And so was born Project Amani: An international cycling team that brings together initiatives aimed at enhancing inclusivity in cycling and creating opportunities for riders based in Africa.

    As many listeners will know, G!RO has been supporting Masaka Cycling Club in Uganda with Ross Burrage. This last year, Masaka has joined forces with Amani Project as one of its three supported cycling clubs in Africa. We were in turn introduced to Mikel, and it has been an absolute pleasure getting to know him, his work, and what he stands for. Full of humility and vision, Mikel is doing amazing things with Amani, and it is an honour to be involved in someway here at G!RO. 

    G!RO is stepping up its support of Masaka in 2021 and beyond, and this podcast serves as a good foundation as to the works of Project Amani and its ethos.We really enjoyed this conversation between Jordan and Mikel, and we are sure you will. 

    So sit back, grab a brew & enjoy.

Always a good listen

Great podcast for those long days in the saddle or on zwift - Keep it up.

Looking forward to an espresso at the cafe when it opens back up.

bike tim ,

Honest and informative

Well edited, great conversations, and good dive into not just cycling but also surrounding culture. More please Jordan.

RichDawson ,

Interesting

I enjoy these BUT can I ask that when you ask a question you then keep quiet and let them answer your question. You don’t need to keep saying ‘yeah’ ‘yeah’ ‘yeah’ every 5 seconds, it spoils it.
