This week is only the *second-ever* official edition of the Tour de France Femmes.
In this special stand-alone episode of the Power Plays Podcast, Lindsay talks with author, activist, and former pro cycler Kathryn Bertine about the long fight to get women's cycling onto this huge stage, and why there's so much more work to be done until we reach equality.
Plus, for those -- like your podcast host -- who don't know much about bike racing, Kathryn gives us a the basics so we can understand what we're watching.
You can watch the closing two legs of the Tour de France Femmes this weekend on Peacock starting at 9:20 a.m. ET on Saturday and 10:05 a.m. ET on Sunday.
