Show 87 - Infrared, Jealousy and Apologies
It's been a while, hasn't it? Which is why, like a grocery delivery driver who's beyond apologetic for missing the last week's package, we're turning up absolutely full to the brim of podcast goodness. So in one of our busiest and most jam-packed episodes, well, ever, we cover, in no particular order; Raya's new watch (yeah that Wahoo jobby, she got it before ANYONE, the jammy b*tch), needles (listen to find out), axles (also listen), and we put our tail between our legs and apologise for what can only be described as our most complained about innaccuracy ever discussed. Oh God we're sorry. Can you please stop complaining now? But our main topic today - and it's a GEEK-OUT of Herculean propotions; is talking to Tim Brownstone, Athlete and Biochemist and CEO and inventor of the Kymira smart textiles collections. That's right, smart clothing. I don't mean a pocket to put your phone in with a little hole to put the charging cable through, I mean, actually clothing that makes you recover faster by making your body work differently. Witchcraft? Sounds it. But listen. It's genuinely beyond fascinating. It's a busy show. Want to know how busy it is? We ran out of time for the Velominati. RAN OUT OF TIME! Frank will be devestated.

Ep 94: Let's talk, say Zwift. Strava shake it up (again) and all the Zwifty news and chat
Simon, Shane and Nathan reconvene to consider the state of the Zwift nation. Once the pressing matter of “leg posts” is dealt with,  the podcasters move on to discuss the content of Simon’s interview with Zwift’s new hire Mark Cote, the company’s director of programming and content. One of the many strands of Mark’s expansive new role, which he explains in some detail, is to improve the communications between community and company, a move that the Zwiftcasters believe will be welcome. There’s been yet another Strava shake-up on Watopia and the other Zwift worlds with a whole load of segments vanishing from the public view. Simon chats with Zwift Insider’s head of everything, Eric Schlange, on what it all means, how it came about and why it might be time for a re-think of how segments are made and managed. The podcasters range across a cornucopia of Zwift business including signs of Zwift restricting some hardware on some platforms for some users and the reasons why more women seem to be getting public sanctions for cheating in racing than men. Zwift has recently launched another of its social impact campaigns, this time celebrating the contribution Black athletes have made to the sport. Simon chats to one of the inspirational voices of the initiative, ex-racer and Zwift staffer Rahsaan Bhati. And in and amongst all that there’s lots of other Zwift-related chat. We hope you enjoy listening.

15: Service Course | Cycling in cyberspace
In this episode of Service Course, Lizzy Banks and Tom Whalley take a deep dive into the world of online cycling, something that we've all become even more accustomed to over the last 12 months thanks to a global pandemic. Tom speaks to Zwift's lead game designer Wes Salmon, Hustle City creator Marcus Cheek, cyclist and CEO of Die Gute Fabrik Hannah Nicklin, Mike Rose from No More Robots, and Stuart Ruecroft. If you played Milk Race on your Spectrum or Commodore 64 in the 1980s then you'll have seen some of Stuart's work. In the episode Tom asks how platforms such as Zwift have been so successful in combining the language of cycling with that of video games. Tom also peaks into the future to see what new platforms are emerging, platforms such as SOL cycling and Hustle City, and looks at how they are going to utilise your smart turbo trainer to create new ways to enjoy online cycling. Plus Lizzy takes a look at a sub-5kg disc-brake bike build. Service Course by The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.
