    Rouleur Tech Podcast - Eco-friendliness with Effetto Mariposa

    Rouleur Tech Podcast - Eco-friendliness with Effetto Mariposa

    How green are the chemicals we put on our bikes to clean, lubricate and repair them? And how much faith should we put in claims of biodegradability and green credentials? Dan Cavallari talks the issues through with Alberto de Gioannini, founder of the Effetto Mariposa brand. His company makes high-quality tools and accessories, and eco-friendly cleaners, sealants and lubricants. Dan looks at the innovative tech behind the products, including the tyre sealant Vegetalex, made from olive waste and described by Alberto as 'like a very bad pesto'.

There are features on race favourites Primož Roglič and Annemiek van Vleuten, Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig's guide to the Grand Depart host city Copenhagen, and the story of the first women's Tour De France in 1984. And in the second half of the podcast, Ed talks to a cycling geologist with a particular fascination for the mountains and plains which make up the Tour route.

And how do you establish a bike brand in such a crowded marketplace? On this episode, he talks to some of the team at Vitus, one of the smaller brands on the scene, but one with a long and intriguing history.

    Rouleur Conversations - Rouleur 111 The Youth Issue

    Rouleur Conversations - Rouleur 111 The Youth Issue

    Pro-cyclists are getting younger. Really, it's not you getting older. In the men's and women's pelotons, Grand Tours and World Championships are being won by riders in their early twenties, or even younger. Good timing for Rouleur 111 - the Youth Issue. On this podcast, Rouleur's Rachel Jary talks about her article on the lack of racing for Under-23 women, and the problems that's causing for the sport as a whole. And Rouleur editor Ed Pickering chats with Joe Laverick about the roller-coaster challenge of racing in Belgium.

Awesome interview with Greg and Kathy LeMond

I became and avid follower of the pro Peloton during LeMond’s tours. This was the best interview of the greatest American pro! I would have listened to hours of his stories. He really was a phenom. Great work!

Fun & Informative

I <3 Orla & I <3 Stuart. The “Longreads,” are sometimes just more than a bit pretentious.... A long lasting remnant of the deeply imbedded British attitude of the superior colonist. Deracinate!

Great guests

Always something new and interesting on this podcast. I loved hearing William Fotheringham talk about Paris-Roubaix - the classic, the movie and the book!
