Customer Reviews

Ballroomdru ,

One of the best

This is one of the best cycling podcasts out there. I love the variety of discussions and the continuing guests.

CityGirlRides ,

Lot's of Laughing. There are Serious Moments too.

I look forward every week to Wheel Suckers Podcast. It's usually packed with lots of laughs and talk about the cycling scene, cycling culture, and bike stuff. I enjoy the interviews with some of the greatest in the cycling industry and sport and the honesty in their conversations. While there is lots of laughing involved, there are some serious moments too. You feel part of the conversation and are given plenty to think on. Words of wisdom from Richards Bicycle Book are my favorite!

Anthony in Carmel ,

Love this Podcast!

Really enjoyable podcast, despite the fact I am technically a MAMIL. Much broader scope than cycling podcasts that focus primarily on pro racing or bike maintenance or fitness/training - lots of good stuff about cycling culture (and subcultures) and the part cycling plays in different people's lives and interests. The hosts have a fun sense of humor and delightful energy playing off each other. Nice to hear women's voices in cycling (not always well represented). My only complaint is WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO COME OUT WITH A NEW EPISODE?
