Podcast 2017 Episode 3 – She Rode It Geniusly

Podcast logoThis week we talk about all the racing that’s happened in the last couple of weeks from the Deakin Women’s Race as part of the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race through to the Cyclocross World Championships in Luxembourg. There’s been some amazing racing and even more to discuss! There’s also been some disappointing news from around the traps and we cover those important events as well. We finish on a high note though, with Sarah’s wrap up of how you can help women’s cycling in practical ways! (1:24:46 MIN / 77.61 MB)

Other things we talked about

Sarah’s post about ways we can all take 5 minutes a week to do some really simple actions that will definitely helping women’s cycling.


Loren Rowney announced her retirement from racing, in a typically honest piece on Ella Cycling Tips, that talked about her love of cycling, but also her eating disorder and depression – but how ultimately, she’s leaving on her own terms.  We wish her all the best.

Please do nominate your favourite women’s cycling people and organisations for the 2017 #BeAGameChanger awards by the Women’s Sports Trust.  The deadline is 15th February.
