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)

The Philadelphia Classic has been cancelled, and we’re really depressed about it – but there is a petition to change that decision, that you can sign.

Podcast 2015, Episode 33 – Australia!

Podcast logo Dan is busy right now, so I swapped him for another Australian, to explain all about the Aussie Summer of Cycling, and why we should all be meeting up in Melbourne and Adelaide for January 2017.  Monique Hanley is a former bike racer who does a ton of work promoting cycling, especially women’s cycling, and especially through her roles on the Executive Board of Cycling Victoria, and as chair of Cycling Australia’s Women’s Commission, and she’s one of my very favourite people in cycling.

January is an amazing month for Australian road cycling, and it’s fantastic to see the strong UCI mini-season for the women back Down Under.  We talked about how cycling has changed for the country – and given Monique’s roles in Cycling Federations, we also talked about the recent Genèvieve Jeanson podcast and story on Cyclingnews, and what cycling bodies can learn from her experience, and prevent anything similar happening in the future.

Things we talked about this week

The Australian Summer of Cycling:

There’s always great information on the Cycling Australia website, and on their twitter, and there are great videos on their YouTube – we wish all races would use their format, of riders telling the stories of the races.  I’ll put links to watching the races live nearer the time.

UPDATE!  Here’s Cyclingnews’ video preview:

The Kirsten Frattini’s Genèvieve Jeanson podcast and story are on Cyclingnews – and I wrote about it here.  The Australian Sports Commission have a strong Play By The Rules section to support athletes in all sports, and their  member protection policies and documents are here, with all their other Integrity In Sport policies.  If you in Australia and affected by domestic abuse in any way, there are organisations here  that can provide help, advice and support.

Follow Monique on her twitter, and listen to the interview about her cycling story Dan and I did with her pretty much exactly two years ago.  You can find out about all the work Cycling Victoria do on their website, including their pages for women and girls, and their resources for clubs.

Podcast 2015 Episode 1 – Happy Birthday Pauline

The-Unofficial,-Unsanctioned-Women's-UCI-Cycling-ShowHi everybody and welcome to 2015! It’s kind of the season but not really the season which means it’s the pre-season, and pre-season means we’re talking about Ladies Tour of Qatar. Of course, we’re never satisfied with just one subject so we’re also talking about Cyclocross worlds, Para-cycling and all the crazy, funny, awesome blogs and videos and things we’ve seen about the place in the last couple of weeks. (1:09:31 MIN / 66.73 MB)
