This week on the CyclingTips podcast...

Ineos dominated the Volta a Catalunya, sweeping the general classification podium.

There were also three WorldTour one-days for the men and two for the women. All five of the races featured interesting tactical choices by many of the top teams.

For Nerd Nuggets, James gets into Enve's new bike frames.

We kick off this week's show with a breakdown of Milan-San Remo and Trofeo Binda, including Ineos curious tactics at the former and Trek's fantastic tactics at both. 

Then, James digs into a new pedal-based power meter from Garmin that is SPD compatible, meaning it'll work for your mountain or gravel bike. 

Check out Continental's video launch of their new Ruban and eRuban tyres here.

In the latest of our deep-dives with the people behind new products, we sit down with Chip Hawkins, the founder of Wahoo, and Ian Boswell, a former WorldTour pro and now Wahoo athlete, to talk through the company's acquisition of Speedplay, their plans for a power meter, and how they've improved the pedals themselves.

This episode is brought to you in partnership with Wahoo. As always, we ask anything we want.

This week on the CyclingTips podcast...

We discuss Paris-Nice and Tirreno-Adriatico. Two fantastic weeklong stage races full of controversy, heartbreak, and wonderfully exciting wins. Abby quickly breaks down the Healthy Ageing Tour, and everyone looks forward to the last 15 km of Milan-Sanremo. 

Nerd Nuggets this week features Ronan Mc Laughlin answering some of the questions about Wahoo's newly reintroduced Speedplay pedals. 

Lastly, you can find Ostroy's Black Cycling Pioneers Resort Shirt here. 100% of the proceeds go to Ride Up Grades, let's get more kids on bikes!

This week on the CyclingTips podcast...

The whole crew is still excited about the men's and women's races at Strade Bianche over the weekend. Italian racing wasn't the only action, however. Paris-Nice is on, and Cavendish is (almost) back. 

James has even more power meter news to discuss, this time in the form of power meter...shoes?

Happy International Women’s Day!

Over the past couple of years, the number of female-identifying cyclists has grown. More women are finding cycling, the joy and the freedom that accompanies hopping on a bike and taking off on an adventure. What continues to bring more women to cycling is the community, the friendships that develop around the bike.

To get a sense of where the cycling industry stands when it comes to female-identifying cyclists Abby chatted with two women who are immersed in the industry.

Elorie Slater, marketing manager of Pivot Cycles, has put a lot of thought into how to get more female-identifying riders on bikes. Through her experience at her bike shop and within the marketing world of cycling she has connected with other cycling companies to put aside their differences and band together to make cycling a more inclusive and welcome environment.

Luisa Grappone, an aerospace engineer for Hunt bike wheels, came to the cycling industry after working with aeroplanes. She has a unique perspective of being a woman in a male dominate field.

We at CyclingTips are proud to bring more women’s voices in front of the cycling world and continue to work towards growing cycling to include everyone who loves bikes, just like we do.

This week on the CyclingTips podcast...

There was a lot of races to discuss, between the Opening Weekend in Belgium, a small race in France, and the finale of the UAE Tour.

Dane and Abby debate the best transfer of the women's peloton.

For this week's Nerd Nugget segment James called up Jamie Milroy of DASH in the UK to talk about their bike subscription program. The concept of leasing instead of buying a bike is one that has been discussed on the podcast before, so we dive into it a little deeper.
