Over the past few years, and even more over the past few months, podcasts have became more and more popular. Lots of new podcasts appeared during the isolation period, and we know some will disappear very soon and some will still be around in several years.
We have listed below the 5 best cycling podcasts available at the moment, and we tell you why we think they are worth your time.
#1 - Cycling Insights
Cycling Insight is a monthly podcast hosted by Tour de France commentator Matthew Keenan and Grand Tour stages winner Simon Gerrans. In each episode, Matt and Simon are going through the latest cycling news, discuss cycling history and deliver training tips you can easily implement and follow. Our favourite part is the Rapid Fire Questions segment where each host only have a split second to answer a question.
Why do we recommend it: this podcast is made for every cycling enthusiast, not just experts.
#2 - Cycling Central Podcast
The Cycling Central Podcast is hosted by SBS journalist Christophe Mallet and former Giro d’Italia stage winner David McKenzie. This podcast is entirely focused on cycling news and a daily episode is released during the Tour de France. Christophe’s French accent and David enthusiasm make the podcast very easy to listen.
Why do we recommend it: the perfect analysis from Dave McKenzie and the great atmosphere between the two hosts.
#3 - Re-cycle
Re-Cycle is a podcast produced by Eurosport and it revisits the big moments of cycling history. From tragedy to exploits, this podcast will take you down memory lane. The stories are wonderfully written by Felix Lowe and perfectly narrated by Graham Willgoss, and the combination of the two guarantees a perfect immersion in the story you are listening to.
Why do we recommend it: if you like history and you want to hear about Bobet, Gimondi and Merckx exploits, this podcast is for you!
#4 - Life In The Peloton
Professional rider Mitch Docker (EF Education First) regularly catches-up with fellow pro riders and cycling personalities for a casual chat about their career and their daily life. Mitch proves to be a very good interviewer and you can feel the guests are really comfortable talking to him.
Why do we recommend it: it is a unique way to dive into the life of a pro cyclist and understand the character and the psychology of some of the best athletes in the peloton.
#5 - From The Top
Produced by Cycling Tips and hosted by CyclingTips founder Wayne Wallace, From The Top tells the story of cycling entrepreneurs and cycling personalities. From the founder of Wahoo to Phil Liggett’s career, Wayne Wallace explores how these individuals have build or have became some of the most recognisable brands in the cycling industry
Why do we recommend it: it is an interesting angle to present cycling from a business perspective instead of a performance perspective.
