    Rouleur Conversations Issue 114 - The Sustainability Issue

    Rouleur Conversations Issue 114 - The Sustainability Issue

    Just how green is cycling? Clearly the act of pedalling your bike is about as eco-friendly as it gets, but what about the way it was built, the delivery chain, even the clothes you wear to ride? Not looking quite so green now. And bike racing? Best not to ask how many air and lorry miles are involved in transporting the peloton around the globe. Rouleur Issue 114 looks at sustainability in cycling - on this podcast Editor Ed Pickering explains why it matters. And cycling journalist and F1 presenter Laura Winter joins us to talk about how Netflix are hoping to deliver some Grand Prix glamour to our sport.

    Rouleur Conversations Beryl Burton - Britain's Greatest Athlete

    Just how good was Beryl Burton? Her achievements are well known - countless British and international titles, beating not just the best women but the best men in time trialling, setting records which lasted decades. But how does she compare with today’s best? A new biography aims to answer that questions, but also tell the extraordinary story of the woman who can stake a real claim to have been Britain’s greatest ever athlete. Author Jeremy Wilson joins Ian Parkinson on this podcast.

    Rouleur Tech Podcast - The Bicycling Nomad

    Rouleur Tech Podcast - The Bicycling Nomad

    Next time you feel like moaning about the weight of your bike-packing rig, spare a thought for the members of the Buffalo Soldiers Bicycle Corps, the black US soldiers who rode 1900 miles across gravel roads on heavy steel single speeds loaded down with military kit. Their expeditions, in the late 1890s, were designed to demonstrate the efficiency of transporting soldiers by bike rather than horse or foot. Modern-day explorer Erick Cedeño, known as The Bicycle Nomad, was captivated by their story and determined that it should be more widely known. He's recently retraced their journey, although on slightly more modern equipment. Dan Cavallari has been talking to him.
    You can watch video of Erick and Dan on this link:

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!

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!

Nothing special here.

Nothing special here, for the amount of advertising. If you have nothing else to listen too, otherwise move along.
