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.

    MASH in San Francisco on lockdown

    MASH in San Francisco on lockdown

    Starting in San Francisco in the mid-2000s as a loose group of fixie racers, MASH gained global attention by pushing their track bikes to the limits and filming their exploits in the way skaters had previously. With pro-cycling at the time obsessed with performance and tarnished by cheating, they were the antidote that reminded people just how fun riding and racing could be, pure and simple. It led to highly-desirable frame collaborations with Cinelli, a physical store on Sanchez Street and hundreds of thousands of followers around the World. For this episode, recorded remotely during the global pandemic lockdown, I caught up with founder Mike Martin and rider Chas Christiensen at their homes in California to hear the story of MASH.

    Lachlan Morton and Alex Howes in Colorado on lockdown

    Lachlan Morton and Alex Howes in Colorado on lockdown

    Aussie Lachlan Morton and US National Champion Alex Howes have been friends since they raced each other as teenagers. Despite coming from different parts of the planet, they're now on the same pro team and based a few miles apart in Colorado, USA. Compared to life in lockdown for many of their teammates at EF Pro Cycling, they have it slightly easier as they're still able to head out into the Rockies and train at altitude - provided they don't encounter lightning or some of the big wildlife that shares their home roads, as you'll hear.

    Rohan Dennis in Girona on lockdown

    Rohan Dennis in Girona on lockdown

    Rohan Dennis is the best men's time trialist in the World, having taken the famous rainbow jersey (or skinsuit) for the last two years. His ability against the clock is simply incredible, and as he showed in Yorkshire in 2019, that's even when the road ahead is far from flat. The same is true of his experience as a pro over the last couple of years too - it's been a bit of a bumpy ride. Sitting indoors on my Kickr turbo, Rohan chatted candidly to me from lockdown in his apartment in Girona in Catalonia about the highs and lows of his impressive career so far, and why his teenaged views on men in lycra meant it almost never happened.

    Ian Boswell in Vermont on lockdown

    Ian Boswell in Vermont on lockdown

    Ian Boswell (aka Boz) should probably still be racing his bike on the road at the age of 29, but a bad crash at Tirreno-Adriatico in 2019 forced him to rethink his future plans. Having criss-crossed the planet wearing the jerseys of famous teams like Sky and Katusha during his career, he jumped on his Kickr bike in the basement of his Vermont, USA home to chat to me about his hopes for getting back on the gravel, and why living as a top-level pro was very good preparation for life in lockdown

    Tom Pidcock in Yorkshire on lockdown

    Tom Pidcock in Yorkshire on lockdown

    Tom Pidcock is the most exciting young cycling talent to emerge in the UK in the last couple of years, but really, it's in the mud and under the grey skies of continental Europe where he has impressed the most. Getting silver early in 2020 at the cyclocross world championships in Switzerland was the first time a Brit broke the stranglehold the Dutch and Belgians have had on the podium. Normally at this time of year, Flanders is home for Tom, but the pandemic sweeping the planet meant he headed back to the family house in Leeds in Yorkshire, where he spoke to me from the dining room turned pain cave.

    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.
