Podcast 2014 Episode 57 – Twas the Eve Before Christmas

Podcast logoThere’s been heaps going on in the world of women’s cycling. Cyclocross, parties, forthcoming races and so on. We recap 2014 and take a look at what’s up in January 2015. Jokes, swears and happy thoughts are plentiful! Sarah gives Dan the WORST Christmas present ever (unless it was a reverse present to herself, which does sort of make sense). Also, Dan shares a meme. Thanks for joining us in 2014, we look forward to talking more amazing cycling stuff with you in 2015. Have a safe and happy holiday season. And stay warm/cool as your preferences dictate!

  1. I’m sorry but to me, rock salt is still the stuff that makes my winter bike go rusty much more quickly than it otherwise would. Although I guess it does stop me falling over quite so often as I otherwise would. Oh, I dunno, now I’m even more confused…
