They're not cheap, but how do you put a price on what some consider to be the world's most beautiful bikes?

    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.

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.
