    Post-Lockdown Riding

    Post-Lockdown Riding

    With COVID 19 Lockdown restrictions slowly easing across the United Kingdom, many of us have been lucky enough to get back out into the real world and enjoy the pleasures of socially distanced riding with friends, visiting different places and even taking part in the occasional race.
    With that in mind, Simon, Tom and Felix sat down (virtually) to discuss what kind of riding they’ve been doing over the past few weeks. There’s talk of comfortable cruises out of the city for overnight escapes, trips to the mountains of France and about how, despite having all the kit, Simon just can’t seem to take a win at the local mid-week time trial series.

    Why is XC so hot right now?

    Why is XC so hot right now?

    XC is having a vintage year in 2020, with a raft of new bikes being released. While the Olympics might not be happening, bike development hasn't stopped.
    We're also seeing the massive growth in 'downcountry' bikes - slacker short-travel trail bikes with plenty of XC DNA woven into their carbon frames. 
    We've tested numerous here at BikeRadar, so Tom and Alex sit down and chat all things fast and flat-out.

What a brilliant podcast. Totally aimed at the masses. Info on buying bikes and components is invaluable. So easy to get swept along with advertising and hard sales. Learning loads about the fraternity as a whole too.
