Our site started as the home of The Unofficial, Unsanctioned Women’s UCI Cycling Show. This unholy podcast was the unfortunate brainchild of Dan Wright, who (while in a moment of weakness or perhaps drunkenness) suggested to Sarah Connolly (aka the knower of EVERYTHING about women’s cycling – although she says she’s just a fangirl) that they record a podcast of him acting like a dick and her explaining the joys of women’s racing.
Also, they swear a lot. Dan maintains it’s because he’s really good at it and that swearing is “one of his skills”. Sarah says it’s because she’s British.
Over the years the website has changed and grown, with Sarah’s obsessive collections of videos, “How to” guides to watching women’s cycling live streams, gift idea for women’s cycling fans and where to buy cycling kit, research into the women’s sport, “Equivalenting” games, the occasional rant and angry post and musings on whatever cycling-related joy crosses her mind. If you want to know why Sarah says “women’s cycling” rather than just “cycling”, that’s here. And if you want to listen to her podcast interviews with riders and people involved in women’s cycling, we’ve got a separate category for that. She’s even got a guide to what women’s road racing we might be able to watch live in 2016.
Sarah’s able to do this thanks to the amazing backing of her fantastic Patreon supporters. You can find out more, and maybe even support her yourself, over here.
In any case this blog is all to do with professional women’s cycling, except for the bits that aren’t. If you’ve got comments, questions, ideas, contacts, need help changing a spare tyre or just want to hurl abuse, then have at it. Our email is prowomenscycling[at]gmail[dot]com – you can contact us on twitter – Sarah is @_pigeons_ and Dan is @DanWOfficial. If you want to see the stuff Sarah keeps tracking down about women’s cycling in a different format, check out her Tumblr, and you can support all Sarah’s cycling work from as little as $2/month on her Patreon.
Thanks for stopping by.
