Are Cycling Podcasts For You?

I have been a part of the Cycling 360 podcast team now for the past five months and each episode we record becomes more interesting and polished than the last. I get to spend a lot of time recording these shows with two incredibly talented and knowledgeable guys (Victor and Rob), talking about different aspects of cycling….it doesn’t get better than that now, does it?

We started off by releasing the podcasts twice per month, but as of July we have moved into weekly distribution and have cycling podcast goodness coming at you each Friday.  But you may be asking yourself…..What is a Podcast and what is Cycling360 all about?

What’s a Podcast?

According to Wikipedia,

podcast (or non-streamed webcast) is a series of digital media files (either audio or video) that are released episodically and often downloaded through web syndication. The word replaced webcast in common use with the success of the iPod and its role in the rising popularity and innovation of web feeds.

Basically, it’s what happened when they took the words “broadcast” and “iPod” and put them together to create a term for audio information that is put out through the internet and using applications such as iTunes.

What is Cycling360? is the host site to the Cyling360 Podcast hosted by myself, Victor Jimenez (BicycleLab), and Rob Grissom (Positive Performance Coaching). The 3 of us bring years of experience and expertise in cycling fitness, technology, coaching nutrition and many other cycling related topics to bring you what we feel is a pretty awesome product.

We now have several podcasts available including topics such as “Is Fear Keeping You From Riding?“, “Group Riding Etiquette“, “Breaking Through Plateaus“, “Weight Maintenance for Cyclists“, “Travel and Cycling“, and many more.  All of our episodes are a lot of fun to listen to, and like we say in our into….These Podcast Will Make You a Better Cyclists.

Do I need Itunes?

Not at all.  Each of the podcasts can be listened to right on the website without having to download to your iPod.  When you’re on the website,, simply take a look through all the pages and find the podcast you’d like to listen to.  Below each title, you’ll see two options…”Play in a New Window” or “Download”.  If you choose to play it in a new window then it will open up a new webpage and play the podcast right there for you to listen.  You can pause, rewind, and listen to it at your convenience.
