AureliaV ,

Info and jokes

One of my favourite podcasts. I look forward to every episode (but sometimes save them up for a long indoor training ride!). Some episodes are more informational, others more story-telling focused. But all are presented with empathy, humour and expertise that obviously comes from many years of knowing and being cyclists. My absolute favourite about this pod is the opening tune. I wish I had it as a ringtone - whenever I hear it I know something good is to come.

Thomas Mouse ,

This pod keeps getting better!

Hey guys, keep up the good work. I’ve been loving this pod, even the chain lube episode. Really enjoyed the latest one, excellent chatting. Thanks!

bikerdan ,

Good sh#t!!

Love the show! I listen to it all the time whilst working in various gardens.

Keep it silly and informative, I like it!!
