The Slow Ride Podcast

Ep 161 – Tour de France

Le Tour has begun and that means so has the annual SRP Velogames trash talk. We break down why all our teams are wrong, and of course wish Valverde a speedy recovery. Plus a very special concept team, will it beat us all? Probably. Tim explains how to sell a flat kit without insulting people,…

Ep 160 – Fluffing and Puffing

It’s our Pre-Tour de France spectacular and all our bargain basement predictions must go! We have two exciting new segments this week, that we totally swear we will remember to do again. For sure this time. Promise. Tim had to leave early, so Spencer and Matt do the heavy lifting and close out the podcast…

Ep 159 – Good Intentions

Some times your hearts in the right place but maybe your pursuit is a little misguided? Maybe your kid BMX dreams are clouding your vision?

Ep 158 – Draft Day

Ep 157 – Hammer-Smashed Race

This week we discuss the new and amazing (and softball joke opportunity-filled) race that is the Velon Hammer Series. Tim gets negative, Spencer keeps it posi-core and Matt respects Tim’s commitment to the joke. For better or worse. We discuss the biggest Rick move by a race promoter, and a new Fondo idea. Enjoy.  …

Ep 156 – Three Bellied Gobbler

This week we wrap up our love affair with the Giro, eat some serious humble pie, and argue about the “rules”. Tim tells us who is out to ruin this MTB thing we are all so excited about trying, and Spencer has a new great sounding hair cut. Plus a hashtag. Check it out! We are…

Ep 155 – Your Team Classification Winners!

This is a big episode, or at least it’s long. Or, at least it WAS long. You’ll see what we mean. Tim talks GFNY and badgers actual Campagnolo’s, Matt doesn’t go to a race because he’s cold and Spencer has a sweet cheat to start in the second group. We discuss things we’ve won and…

Ep 154 – The Secret Banana

This week we talk about the Giro and velogames (where Tim makes a startling admission) and the Tour of California, before things get… weird. LittleGuy has some greenway stories and we do manage to define Manspreading The Bike as well, so all-in-all a productive show! Check it out! We are supported by Health IQ, a…

Ep 153 – Becoming Pippo

This week it’s 100% Giro and 0% Tim, and that is a win-win! Tim missed the episode due to some last minute travel, and Matt missed his velogames entry due to bad information gleaned from himself on this podcast. Yeah, it didn’t make sense to me either. Matt also had some new Bike Rack Stories,…

Ep 152 – Gutterwork

This week starts on a down beat, as the cycling world comes to grip with several recent tragic losses. The Slow Ride would like to pay our respects to those affected and our cycling family in general. In cycling news, the Giro is upon us and we couldn’t be more excited! We make some bad…
