This week we’re joined by ex-professional cyclist turned philosopher-author, James Hibbard, to chat about his book, The Art of Cycling: Philosophy, meaning, and a life on two wheels. It’s a sort of memoir-cum-meditation – a bit like Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance – taking the form of a cycling road trip interspliced with tales of James’s racing career and musings through the lens of philosophers such as Nietzsche and Plato. Here, our James talks to James about the sport we all love so much, what it really is, why do we do actually do it, and – the scariest question of all – is there even any point?  The Art of Cycling: Philosophy, meaning, and a life on two wheels is published by Pegasus Books, buy it now on Amazon.Interview starts at 5:22.-------------Did you know Cyclist is also stunning monthly magazine?

7. The new Specialized Tarmac SL7 and the death of the aero bike

The aero bike is dead. Well, according to Specialized it is. Earlier this week it launched its latest road racing bike, the Tarmac SL7, which not only hits the UCI weight limit of 6.8kg but is so fast in the wind tunnel, Specialized has decided to ditch its dedicated Venge aero bike.That's right, we have got to the point where a lightweight race bike is just as fast as an out-and-out aero bike.So this begs the question, is the aero bike dead?James and Joe caught up with product manager of the new Tarmac SL7, Cameron Piper, to ask him about the end of aero and the other mass changes seen with the new Tarmac SL7, not least that new threaded bottom bracket!James and Joe then mull over where road bikes are headed and what other bike trends could join aero in the bin.James has a gripe about how bikes are not set up properly for the consumer while Joe praises Shimano Ultegra Di2 and laments a diesel 4x4 being promoted by a professional cycling team.For more on the Cyclist Magazine Podcast - https://www.cyclist.co.uk/cyclistmagazinepodcastSubscribe to Cyclist Magazine now - https://cyclistmag.co.uk/cyclistmagazinepodcast Hosted on Acast.

6. A history of Pinarello bikes and a chat with the world's best domestique, Tim Declercq

Bike racing is literally weeks away from returning so to celebrate, we called up the world’s best domestique, Tim Declercq of Deceuninck-Quickstep - it’s official, he won a vote and everything.We had lots to ask him and he had lots to say such as how nervous his all-conquering Classic team get before the start of the Tour of Flanders, how sprinters no longer cooperate with one another in the gruppetto and how he arranges for his wife Tracey to pick him up halfway through Paris-Roubaix so he doesn’t have to ride to the finish line.Oh, and Tim has been spending his lockdown playing computer games and building cots for his newborn daughter, Marilou.And since the turn of the year, James has spent more time riding, visiting and talking about Italian bike brand Pinarello than he has spent time with his own father.Before lockdown, James jumped on a plane to the brand’s base in Treviso, northern Italy, for a tour of its factory conducted by the man himself, Fausto Pinarello. He saw a collection of the most defining bike’s in Pinarello’s history for a feature that can be found on the Cyclist website while he also sat down for a long conversation with Fausto, the profile of which is in the latest issue Cyclist, on sale now.James also rode and reviewed the Pinarello Dogma F12 Disk and is currently riding the Pinarello Grevil gravel bike. Honestly, if he was to go onto Mastermind, Pinarello would be his specialist subject.So with all this knowledge, we talk through the brand’s humble beginnings in the early 1950s to being the bike that has taken 10 Grand Tours in just eight years.Joe mentions the new Continental GP5000 clincher tyre in tan wall, you can read about that here - https://www.cyclist.co.uk/news/8437/continental-releases-tan-wall-version-of-the-gp5000-road-tyreFor more on the Cyclist Magazine Podcast - https://www.cyclist.co.uk/cyclistmagazinepodcastSubscribe to Cyclist Magazine now - https://cyclistmag.co.uk/cyclistmagazinepodcast Hosted on Acast.

5. How to go Everesting with Phil Gaimon

Welcome back to Episode 5 of the Cyclist Magazine Podcast.Since lockdown stopped bike racing back in March, it seems like every man, woman and their dog have turned their hand to Everesting, the slightly insidious challenge of riding hill repeats on an individual climb, in one continuous ride until you hit 8,848m of vertical elevation. We called up former WorldTour pro turned YouTuber, author, Strava King of the Mountain getter and former Everesting world record holder Phil Gaimon to discuss how hard it actually is, what the perfect climb for an Everesting record attempt would look like and whether it is actually possible for us mere mortals. James and Joe then discuss some of the hardest rides and sportives they have ever done (all of which are much, much harder than Everesting). James discusses the time he retraced Stage 2 of the 1903 Tour de France, a 374km epic from Lyon to Marseille, while Joe talks about how riding the Paris-Roubaix Challenge left him with swollen fingers for a week.Joe also mentions the Bergkonnig Vintage Festival in Switzerland. You can read more about that here - https://www.cyclist.co.uk/in-depth/6400/keeping-it-wool-at-the-bergk-nig-vintage-sportiveAnd if you want to read Joe's review of the Katusha Light rain jacket, that can be found here, too -https://www.cyclist.co.uk/reviews/8388/katusha-light-rain-jacket-reviewFor more on the Cyclist Magazine Podcast - https://www.cyclist.co.uk/cyclistmagazinepodcastSubscribe to Cyclist Magazine now - https://cyclistmag.co.uk/cyclistmagazinepodcast Hosted on Acast.

4. Tattoos of the pro peloton and the interesting history of the cycling team bus

James and Joe return for Episode 4 of the Cyclist Magazine Podcast.Tattoos are a mark of modern life so it comes of no surprise that the professional peloton is awash with them. From Peter Sagan’s Joker tattoo to the lyrics to Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’ scribed across Nico Roche, we discuss the good, the bad and the ugly ink of cycling.We even gave Trek-Segafredo domestique Koen de Kort a call about his tattoo collection and how it represents his life as a cyclist, too.Cold meats, chewing gum, concrete flooring, industrial explosiveness, aperitifs. No, it’s not a dinner party around Mario Cippolini’s house, it's a brief list of some of the weird and wonderful things that have propped up professional cycling teams over the years.We discuss the origins of the cycling team sponsor including one, rather sordid sponsor, that gave us the humble team bus.We also kick off the show with our usual natter on things we like and don’t like.For James, it’s the Rapha Pro Team shoes which he absolutely loves. Luckily, he also put digital pen to internet paper to review these knitted kicks, which can be read here - https://www.cyclist.co.uk/reviews/7764/rapha-pro-team-shoes-reviewAnd for Joe, it’s buying second-hand jerseys from eBay, something he discussed at length here - https://www.cyclist.co.uk/in-depth/8325/forget-modernity-just-buy-your-cycling-jerseys-from-ebayFor more on the Cyclist Magazine Podcast - https://www.cyclist.co.uk/cyclistmagazinepodcastSubscribe to Cyclist Magazine now - https://bit.ly/2W9VZ0t Hosted on Acast.

1. Italy's mystery mountain, Eddy Merckx bikes and ambassador secrets

Hello and welcome to episode 1 of the Cyclist Magazine Podcast, we've been expecting you!On today's episode, Joe and James discuss the Colle Fauniera. A giant mountain in the Italian Alps, it has long been forgotten by the Giro d'Italia but we think it should be near the top of every amateur's bucket list. It's also the home to every ambassador's favourite sweet treat.They also chat about the great one, Eddy Merckx, but not so much about the man himself, rather his bike company that went from hero to zero.Oh, and do forgive Joe's nerves for mistaking Jose Maria Jimenez's name for Juan Miguel Jimenez. Like you, we also don't know who Juan Miguel Jimenez is. And QuickStep only managed five victories in 2011, not 11. How far that team has come!For more on the Cyclist Magazine Podcast - https://www.cyclist.co.uk/cyclistmagazinepodcastSubscribe to Cyclist Magazine now - https://bit.ly/2W9VZ0t Hosted on Acast.
