Dumb and Painful Things We’ve Done As Cyclists! | GCN Show Ep. 592

Clock16:21, Tuesday 14th May 2024

Is this one of the stupidest things we've ever done? In today’s show, we ask ourselves this question, discuss the many stupid things we’ve done in our cycling lives, and reflect on what we learned from them!

We also explore how cycling helmets can double as protection for tennis players from... water bottles? Plus, delve into the latest in bike tech, the recently-released Unbound race route, and much more!

Why You Should Care About Your Average Cycling Speed

As cyclists, we often incorporate interval training into our rides—pushing through brief efforts followed by recovery periods. Yet, it's equally crucial to pay attention to our average speed overall, not just in efforts. Improving this metric can significantly enhance our efficiency on the bike!
