    How to Pronounce Pannier (Its NOT What you Think)

    How to Pronounce Pannier (Its NOT What you Think)

    Pannier is one of the most mispronounced words in the bicycling lexicon and its origins are often misunderstood. Where does the word come from? Is it a French or English word? What is the correct pronunciation? We settle it once and for all in this video and get a little help from Merriam-Webster.

Awesome show and family friendly

Thank you for producing the best Bikepacking related content on the internet. Fun, enjoy your guests. The only thing I wish is for more!!! And more often.

Super interesting

Fascinating people, Interesting, thoughtful, varied discussion. I usually dislike bike podcasts because they just talk about gear or racing. This one goes deeper on why and how the people pushing cycling further do what they do.
