are we to believe that 10 yo boys rode three consecutive 80 mile days on kids bicycles? seems like we're missing some details. this would be a tall order for adult cyclists who train and ride regularly. also huge fan of Heavyweight

Suxh a good podcast, probably my favorite. Mini episodes are really getting old, less and less amusing.

I love this podcast. 💕 I appreciate how Johnathan helps people make peace with things/people from the past. It’s deep and it’s raw and it makes us feel not alone. Thank you!
