What is cycling? It is the sport or activity of riding a bicycle, but how you do it changes from rider to rider. There are many factors that help make up each cyclist DNA from the bike they ride, to the terrain you prefer or the challenges that you want to conquer. The beauty of cycling is that it is not a one size fits all, but it fits any style and flavor. Join me, Elijah Townsend, as I interview individuals from all realms of the cycling world to learn about the characteristics that make up their DNA. Ride bikes, share stories!

    Yancey Ridge S240 Bikepacking.com - Matt McDougall

    Yancey Ridge S240 Bikepacking.com - Matt McDougall

    In 2021, Matt and I embarked on a bikepacking trip through Pisgah National Forest, completing the bikepacking.com route Yancey Ridge S240. The route was very scenic and took us up to Little Lost Cove, Grand Mother Mountain, and on parts of the Blue Ridge Parkway. While the trip was great and a learning experience, we certainly had our share of difficulties. Some issues could not be helped, but others were self-inflicted. Listen to the third episode of the What Is Cycling Podcast, and let us know what you would have done differently in our situation.

    A Grueling Adventure Race, Manduro - Domino Ireland

    A Grueling Adventure Race, Manduro - Domino Ireland

    Thank you for checking out the second episode of the what is cycling podcast. Today we have Domino Ireland with us. The only way I can think of to describe Domino is that he is a pirate and cowboy. He is an avid adventurer, a former marine, hiked the entire Appalachian trail, biked Route 66, created his own treasure hunts, aka a pirate and created one of the wildest bike races in the country with Manduro. Manduro is an adventure race that takes place in Raleigh, North Carolina that takes the riders over the course of 250 miles and 36 hours of riding. All you know is where you are going next by scanning a QR code, but you also have to figure out the best route to get to the next stop. Listen to episode two to gain insight and tips on completing Manduro.

    If you want to learn more about Manduro/Minduro or want to enter the grueling adventure race, follow this link, http://www.manduro.rocks/
