I have always been a fan of how women bike riders have made their own media, so I was really excited when two American riders started their separate, and very different podcasts. Abby Mickey, who rides for Colavita-Bianchi, has been interviewing riders she’s raced alongside, and with; while Lindsay Bayer, who’s the co-owner, manager and rider for Hagens Berman-Supermint, is talking to people involved in women’s cycling in different ways, and a different setting (mostly involving alcohol).
I wanted to know more about them both – so I invited them on for probably my most meta podcast ever – podcasting about podcasting! We talk about a lot more too – why Bayer started her own team, how both of them have almost always ridden for female-run teams, how to spot Mickey’s mother at races, and much more. Have a listen – it’s only half an hour long!
You can find Lindsay Bayer on her website, the Dirtfield, and on her twitter, facebook and instagram, and her podcast, Dirtfield Recordings, is part of the Wide-Angle Podium network, and also on iTunes and the podcast twitter. She also writes a regular column at Peloton Magazine. The team she co-owns, Hagens Berman Supermint, has a website, twitter, facebook and instagram.
Abby Mickey‘s podcast, Wheel Talk, is on her website, on the Wheel Talk podcast page and iTunes, and also on the Wheel Talk twitter, and you can follow her personal social media, too: twitter and instagram. Mickey rides for, Colavita-Bianchi, which you can follow via their website, twitter and instagram too.
