Truly the rail-bike of cycling podcasts

I won’t say you're going nowhere fast with this pod, but the dad-joke banter take and grodeo clown atmosphere certainly make for one slow ride on this rail-bike ride of pro cycling (and not so pro cycling) commentary, which is really balanced out by the regular segments with special correspondent Michael Matthews. Definitely holds the championship belt of my heart (at least for another minute or two). That’s Allaphillipe I have to say about it.

Addition by subtraction

I can’t put my finger on what was different in the most recent episode, but the witty banter and inside jokes seemed elevated. Should be nominated for best Sound Editing in a podcast episode.

The Pod for The Snarky Cyclist

These gentlemen are at many turns inane, puerile, and spot-on about the ridiculous sport of cycling. So many inside jokes and hilarious takes on cycling culture and petty slights unearthed through their storied amateur cycling careers.

Hang in there for their silly cycling themed mystery radio serials. Such good stuff!

I look forward to every Tuesday being Slow Ride Day on my dog walks.
