The Rouleur Podcast
Rouleur Conversations Issue 114 - The Sustainability Issue
Just how green is cycling? Clearly the act of pedalling your bike is about as eco-friendly as it gets, but what about the way it was built, the delivery chain, even the clothes you wear to ride? Not looking quite so green now. And bike racing? Best not to ask how many air and lorry miles are involved in transporting the peloton around the globe. Rouleur Issue 114 looks at sustainability in cycling - on this podcast Editor Ed Pickering explains why it matters. And cycling journalist and F1 presenter Laura Winter joins us to talk about how Netflix are hoping to deliver some Grand Prix glamour to our sport.
