Cycling Podcast Reviews Part II

NY Velocity
The New York website does two pro racing pieces, a set piece monthly with Cyclesport magazine’s Ed Pickering and a regular conversation with evergreen US pro Michael Creed. Sometimes they bag an interview with another rider or two on top.

But the main feature is the “Bickering with Pickering” podcast. It’s timed to coincide with the release of Cyclesport magazine each month but it’s not a prolonged advert for the magazine. Host Daniel Schmaltz chats with Pickering to discuss what’s happened in the gap since the last podcast and the audio is quite good. Pickering’s take on pro racing is informative and Schmalz teases out some humour too. It works and it’s always worth a listen.

The Creed interviews aren’t so interesting, they are long and obviously focussed on one rider’s impression of the US pro scene. If you enjoy the TV series The Wire with its slick editing and clever camera-work, the Creed interviews show the reality of wire tap surveillance: listening to dull private conversations for hours on end.
