Happy Alert

My favorite pod got better. So happy you all are forging a new path and creating your own media. It always feels like chilling with friends. Thank you and keep up this awesome endeavor.

grateful

…..and they’re back! Awesome. Let’s try and avoid the VC creepiness this time! A delightful collection of interesting, intelligent, insightful, timely, and compelling chats about all things bikes. IYKYK. Please don’t change the intro music. The original was the best. Why complicate those beautiful, clear tones with fluff?
I am grateful y’all are back.

Great show

I honestly stopped following cycling in general for the past few years, but finding this show has really got me excited about the sport again. It’s great to hear honest and authentic reporting about the sport. Keep up the great work!
