After being interviewed on Chicks On Bikes Radio (a monthly podcast) this last week, I also found Diane Lees “The Outspoken Cyclist” podcast based out of Ohio. Curious, I decided to look into who does regular cycling themed podcasts & was surprised to see that pretty much everyone but me is already totally into that stuff. Whoops.

Presenting a mini-directory of cycling podcasts by subject niche. Check them out & let us know in the comments if there are any that you love.

Note that podcasts are a strange phenomenon. Some have a million amazing episodes that you can easily download onto an ipod, others are odd files that can only be accessed via a particular website or player. Some may be just starting, or had a great run but were abandoned a few years back. I’ve tried to link to itunes (or at least the episodes talking about something really interesting, like bikes + ladies).
 

WOMEN SPECIFIC:

Women & Cycling (General, but has lots of mechanical How-To’s, Racing discussions & interviews):

  • Chicks On Bikes Radio Based in CA. Celebrating women and cycling. Through storytelling we empower more people to enjoy life on a bike.
  • The Outspoken Cyclist Based in Ohio. Interviews, news, and chat with my engineer Greg Priddy. My shop fits, designs, and builds custom bicycles.
  • Terry BikeCast We cover fitness, fit, trends, how-to’s and look at cycling from a woman’s perspective.
  • Bike Fix: Look, Listen & Feel Based in Canada. KT Misener tells you how to look and listen to your bike, so you know when it needs maintenance.
  • Bike Shop Girl Based in Georgia. Striving to help every woman out there more comfortable and safe on their bicycle.
  • KBOO Bike Show -Based out of Portland. Ayleen Crotty and Sara Stout host.

Indoor Cycling:

(Ok, this is a little strange to me. After all, I live in NYC and can enjoy a live Soul Cycle or FlyWheel class with a big group all in time to a killer studio stereo system and the best instructors on earth. But if you don’t have that kind of access I can see that these free podcasts could be the next best thing.)

  • The Sufferfest Videopodcast indoor cycling workouts, based on great workouts, music and classic bike racing footage
