Join me, Matt Barbet, as I ride with some of the most interesting people in cycling, and others who like to get out on the bike, on the roads they know best. It's not about the most majestic mountains, or the routes of famous races, but the rides we all enjoy: the ones that begin at home - and it's when we're in the saddle, that the stories start to come out.

Join me, Matt Barbet, as I ride with some of the most interesting people in cycling, and others who like to get out on the bike, on the roads they know best. It's not about the most majestic mountains, or the routes of famous races, but the rides we all enjoy: the ones that begin at home - and it's when we're in the saddle, that the stories start to come out.

    Grayson Perry mooching around London

    Grayson Perry mooching around London

    Grayson Perry is one of Britain's best-known and most-recognisable artists, thanks to his flamboyant ceramics and penchant for wearing even more noticeable dresses. He loves cycling too, and when I approached him to go for a ride, he gave me two options - mountain biking in Epping Forest or a "mooch slowly around London a bit pissed on my Dutch bike; a kind of two-wheeled flâneur". I chose the latter, and it didn't disappoint. Contains swearing.

    Worlds Special: Lizzie Deignan in Yorkshire

    Worlds Special: Lizzie Deignan in Yorkshire

    Yorkshire's Lizzie Deignan knows what it takes to become World Champion. When her surname was still Armitstead, she claimed the coveted rainbow jersey in Richmond, Virginia in 2015. In the couple of years afterwards, Lizzie was in unbeatable form, hoovering up wins in some of the biggest races on the women's calendar. Then, having settled down with husband Phil (also a pro-cyclist), she took 2018 out of the sport to become a mum. This year though, the Worlds are back in Britain for the first time in a generation, and being raced on the Yorkshire lanes Lizzie knows so well. We rode together on a loop out of Harrogate, that took in the finish where she aims to clinch the rainbow stripes again.

    Worlds Special: Cadel Evans in Mendrisio, Switzerland

    Worlds Special: Cadel Evans in Mendrisio, Switzerland

    It's exactly a decade since Cadel Evans became the first Australian to become World Champion on the roads around Mendrisio near the Swiss-Italian border. Prior to that, he'd had success racing - both on road and mountain bikes - but hadn't quite reached the highs he was obviously capable of. Soon after though, he also became the first Aussie to win the Tour de France, consigning to history the two times he'd been runner up. Since retiring, Cadel has made his home in Switzerland, and lives just a few kilometres away from where he pulled on the famous rainbow jersey. He took me for a ride around the route of his triumph, before we climbed over the border for lunch next to Lake Como.

    Phil Southerland in Georgia

    Phil Southerland in Georgia

    Phil Southerland thought he would be dead by now. Instead, his achievements in cycling are an inspiration to millions of others who live with diabetes. Diagnosed as a child with type 1, simply surviving was the original plan, but getting out and riding became his life. Being part of a team of diabetic riders that won the Race Across America was the springboard to Phil putting together a group of pros who all live and compete with the condition - Team Novo Nordisk. We headed out on the bikes from Phil's Atlanta home into the Georgia countryside, where a local dog - and not low blood sugar - was the biggest risk we faced.

    Chip Hawkins north of Atlanta, Georgia

    Chip Hawkins north of Atlanta, Georgia

    Chip Hawkins has spent his whole life in America's Deep South, where he founded Wahoo. He is the first to admit that, for a lot of his adult life, he did very little exercise. That all changed in his thirties, and he went all in, but for a man obsessed with data, it was a frustrating experience. The devices on the market at the time were clunky at best, and often refused to talk to each other, so Chip set about solving the problems himself. In the process, he created Wahoo Fitness - which also happens to be the current sponsor of Home Roads. Despite running a half-marathon the next day, Chip took me on a leisurely, if chilly, roll around the backwoods north of Atlanta, GA where he lives, and where Wahoo is based, to tell me the whole story.
