155: Explore | Episode 4 | Lionel's Low Route with Ned Boulting
December 7 | Episode 4After the incredible feats we've covered in the first three episodes of Explore, it's time for a bit of a gear change this time as we discover the joy of cycling and the way a journey on two wheels can develop (and sometimes test) a friendship. Lionel's Low Route is the antidote to the Haute Route, which tackles every mountain on the horizon. Carefully plotting a two-and-a-half day ride across some of England's flattest countryside, Lionel set off with television commentator and author Ned Boulting to prove that there can be a luxury end of the bikepacking spectrum.With Ned on his heavy commuting bike with luggage (some of it Lionel's!), and Lionel on his carbon-fibre Look, and joined by Passepartout Simon Gill, they set off for the inaugural Cambridge-Southwold-Cambridge Classic to talk cycling and much more.We also hear from professional riders Conor Dunne and Larry Warbasse, who set off on their own unsupported bike ride – the No Go Tour – when their Aqua Blue Sport team folded on the eve of the Tour of Britain. They talk about the ups and downs of going on a multi-day ride with a friend.And in the final part of a bumper episode, Richard Moore meets the inspirational Ishbel Holmes, who you may know as @WorldBikeGirl on Twitter. She's the author of the book Me, My Bike and A Street Dog Called Lucy. She set off with next to no money, and very little long-distance cycling experience, to ride round the world. The journey started as a trip to recover some money owed to her by the Iranian Cycling Federation, but turned into something quite different. It's a story that has to be heard to be believed. **Explore is supported by Rapha, Science In Sport and The Economist.** **RUNNING ORDER****Part one:** Lionel's Low Route with Ned Boulting**Part two:** (from 1:01:00) Conor Dunne and Larry Warbasse on the No Go Tour and how to ensure a friendship survives bikepacking**Part three:** (from 1:09:00) Ishbel Holmes on riding round the world**THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS****Rapha** support The Cycling Podcast all year and that support has enabled us to get the wheels rolling on series one of Explore.

154: Remembering Paul Sherwen
December 6 | In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe remember Paul Sherwen, who died at the weekend aged 62.Sherwen was a pioneering rider – heading to France to make it as a professional in the late 1970s when very few British or English-speaking riders managed to make that breakthrough. He was the first of the 'second wave' of English-speakers to tackle the Tour de France and he paved the way for the likes of Graham Jones, Sean Yates and Robert Millar, as well as Phil Anderson and Allan Peiper from Australia.Sherwen rode the Tour seven times for the Fiat and La Redoute teams, finishing it five times, he was twice British national champion, and when he retired he was a directeur sportif for the iconic Raleigh-Banana team.But he is perhaps best known to millions of British, American and Australian cycling fans as one half of the television commentary double-act he formed with Phil Liggett. For successive generations of cycling fans he has been a friendly, welcoming voice for newcomers discovering a complex sport.He was also one of the first team press officers, with the Motorola team in the early 1990s, and – having been brought up in Kenya – he returned to Africa and lived in Uganda, where his passion for the people and the countryside was obvious to everyone who met him.In this episode we hear from Sherwen's great friend and colleague Phil Liggett, from contemporaries from his early professional years, John Herety, Sean Yates and Tim Harris, from journalist Luke Edwardes-Evans, American rider Ian Boswell and François Thomazeau and Orla Chennaoui. The Cycling Podcast is supported by **Rapha** and **Science in Sport**. **BECOME A FRIEND OF THE PODCAST** Our final Friends of the Podcast episode for 2018 will be out very soon.

153: Explore | Episode 3 | End-To-End
November 30 | Episode 3 Earlier this year, long-distance time triallist Michael Broadwith – a multiple national 24-hour champion – set about tackling Gethin Butler’s 17-year-old record for riding from Land’s End to John O’Groats. This is arguably the most prestigious of the place-to-place records, with a history stretching back to 1886. In this episode of Explore by The Cycling Podcast, we meet Broadwith and learn how he planned an executed his record-breaking ride – and how the man whose record he broke was out on the roadside in the middle of the night to support him. Broadwith talks about the preparation and the pain, the support of his wife, Helen, who kept him going when he wanted to stop after hours riding in heavy rain, and the elation of realising the record was in touching distance. This is the story of riding from one end of the country to the other quicker than anyone has ever done it before and, in the process, perhaps revitalising one of the great cycling records. In the second part, we hear from Chloe Hosking, the World Tour professional and Commonwealth Games road race champion, about her experience riding a Gran Fondo in Italy. Are these mass participation events really races in disguise? Explore by The Cycling Podcast is hosted by Lionel Birnie, Hannah Troop and Tom Whalley and is supported by **Rapha**, **Science In Sport** and **The Economist**.**RUNNING ORDER Part one:** Mike Broadwith’s End-To-End **Part two:** (from 1:06:24) Chloe Hosking’s Gran Fondo **THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS** **Rapha** support The Cycling Podcast all year and that support has enabled us to get the wheels rolling on series one of Explore.

151: Explore | Episode 2 | Australia
November 23 | Episode 2 This episode of Explore heads to Australia and then across the great nation with two riders who had very different reasons for setting out on the challenges before them. First up is a compelling interview with Rupert Guinness, an Australian cycling journalist who has been covering professional racing since 1987\. Much loved by his colleagues in the Tour de France press room, and instantly recognisible thanks to his trademark Hawaiian shirts, Rupert signed up for the Indian Pacific Wheel Race – or IndiPac, as it is known – in 2017. It’s an unsupported race across Australia from Freemantle near Perth to the shadow of the Sydney Opera House – a journey of almost 5,500 kilometres. The 2017 event ended in tragedy when Mike Hall was killed and in our interview Rupert talks poignantly about why he decided to stop and go home but also why he had to be on the start line next time round. Following in the wheel tracks of the pioneering Overlanders who crossed Australia by bike and did so much to document what was in the outback and help map the country, Rupert’s ride was also a journey of self discovery… In the second half, we meet a man after Lionel’s heart – the self-styled Slow Cyclist. In 2009, Oli Broom gave up his job in the City of London and decided to cycle to Australia in time to watch the first Test in the Ashes cricket series between England and the Aussies. The thing was, the first ball was due to be bowled a full 14 months after he first turned the pedals to leave London. Riding around 100 kilometres a day, an incredible adventure took him right round the world in 412 days and led him to a new career.

150: Not lunch with Adam Blythe
This episode is a twist on The Cycling Podcast's occasional Lunch With... series.Richard Moore and Lionel Birnie met up with Adam Blythe during the London Six-Day at the Olympic velodrome and although they did have lunch the podcast was recorded once all the plates had been cleared away.The former British national champion is still only 29 but has packed a lot into his nine-year pro career. He'd baulk at being described as a product of the British Cycling academy because he left fairly shortly after joining and headed to Belgium to try to make his way as a pro.He learned how to make a living from racing while living with another former British champion, Tim Harris, and his partner Joscelin Ryan and got his first taste of life in the professional ranks with the Silence-Lotto squad.Since then he's raced for some of the biggest teams in the world – BMC Racing, Orica-GreenEdge and Tinkoff – but has also dropped out of the World Tour twice.He can count Philippe Gilbert, Peter Sagan and Alberto Contador as former team-mates.Most recently he has ridden for the Irish Aqua Blue Sport team that folded suddenly mid-season, but he will return to Lotto-Soudal, where he started his career, in 2019.In this candid conversation, Blythe talks about to survive as a pro.The Cycling Podcast is supported by [**Rapha**](www.rapha.cc) and [**Science in Sport**](www.scienceinsport.com) **The Cycling Podcast Live shows** This is the last chance to get tickets for our almost-sold-out live show at St David's Hall in Cardiff on November 27\.

149: Explore | Episode 1 | The Transcontinental Race
November 16 | Episode 1 The Cycling Podcast’s new series **Explore** focuses on the booming world of endurance and ultra endurance riding and bikepacking. Join hosts Lionel Birnie and Hannah Troop, plus producer Tom Whalley, for a six-part series with new episodes released each Friday morning. Over the course of the series we’ll hear inspirational stories from people who have undertaken some remarkable challenges on two wheels. We’ll hear from someone who rode to Australia, someone who rode across Australia, from round-the-world riders and End-to-End record-breakers. We’ll hear from pro racers, leisure riders and even the self-styled Slow Cyclist. In this opening episode we focus on the **Transcontinental Race**, which has has established itself as Europe’s most well-known bikepacking race. Founded in 2013 by the late Mike Hall, the race has been won for the past two years by James Hayden. Hannah interviews James about the challenge of winning back-to-back editions of the TCR, about how he chooses his route and focuses on his goal of reaching the finish first. Before that, though, we hear the other side of the coin from Richard Abraham, who talks about the emotional effects of scratching from the race 2,000 kilometres in. His account puts into perspective the scale of James’s achievement. In part two we learn about the group of women who form the **Donnons des Elles au Vélo** in riding the Tour de France route one day ahead of the race as they seek to push for a women’s equivalent to Le Tour. We hear from Tetiana Kalachova, who has ridden successive Tours, from Mathieu Istil, who helps to put together the ride from a logistical point of view, and from Juliet Elliott, who is more used to racing short, intense events but joined to ride one stage of the event this year. **THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS** **Rapha** support The Cycling Podcast all year and that support has enabled us to get the wheels rolling on series one of Explore.

148: The Cycling Podcast Féminin | Episode 29
In the November episode of The Cycling Podcast Féminin Richard Moore, Orla Chennaoui and Rose Manley discuss the latest events in women's cycling.There's an interview with Lucy Kennedy of Australia and Mitchelton-Scott at the recent Taiwan KOM Challenge, which she won, and we hear from French rider Audrey Cordon-Ragot on her move from Wiggle-High5 to Trek-Segafredo.Rachel McKinnon recently became the first trans woman to win a world cycling title, taking gold in the sprint in the 35-44 age group at the UCI Masters Championships. We discuss the possible implications for women's sport and speak to Madeleine Pape, a former runner turned academic and an authority on efforts by sports bodies at gender verification, including setting levels of testosterone for female athletes. "Gender verification," she has said, "whether it relies on genetics, DNA, hormones, or gonads, is destined to fail."There's also an interview with Isabel Best, author of a new book, Queens of Pain: Legends and Rebels of Cycling.The Cycling Podcast Féminin is supported by Rapha, Skoda and Science in Sport.**The Cycling Podcast Live shows**Tickets are available for our live show at St David's Hall in Cardiff on November 27\.

146: A stagiaire's story with Freddy Ovett
November 7 | In this bumper episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe look at the long-established route into the professional ranks for young riders – the stagiaire system – and hear an extended interview with Freddy Ovett, who rode as a stagiaire for BMC Racing earlier this year. Each year many of the World Tour teams offer stagiaire placements to young riders for a variety of reasons – to introduce a new signing to the team, to offer a taste of the pro peloton to a talented prospect or to make up their minds on a rider they’re not 100 per cent sure about. We discuss how the system works and look at success rate for riders who sample this kind of work experience or extended job interview. Then we hear from Freddy Ovett, who was in conversation with Richard earlier this year. His surname will be familiar to anyone who followed world-class athletics in the late 1970s and 1980s because Freddy’s father is 1980 Olympic 800m champion Steve Ovett. Freddy Ovett, who was also a talented runner, talks about how he switched to cycling and is still determined to make it into the pro ranks even if the stopwatch is starting to tick. With The Cycling Podcast set for a sell-out live show at the Clapham Grand theatre next week, and with a date at Cardiff’s St David’s Hall at the end of the month, we round off the episode with a couple of clips from one of our live shows in Edinburgh this spring, featuring Lionel and François Thomazeau.

I listened to Sherwen and Liggett because my Dad did when he watched the TdF. My Dad had a Flying Scot bike and I inherited my love of TdF because of him and P&P’s commentary. I honour my Dad’s memory by watching the TdF and it will never be the same without the two Ps’ travelogue.

Probably the best sports podcast I listen too and cycling isn't my number one sport. Richard, Daniel and Lionel are a great combination with news, features and humour in the right measure. Full daily episodes of all grand tours too. Excellent podcast.
