Welcome to episode six of The Bike Lane’s third season. Matt Keenan is back in the hotseat after a week off but struggling with the humiliation of his Movember mo.

This week we’re excited to have a packed episode with some special guests. We begin by talking about Gerry Ryan becoming the new Cycling Australia president; we talk to Richie Porte; we catch up with 2012 World Championship silver medalist Rachel Neylan who is without a contract; One of Australia’s best ever middle-distance runners Craig Mottram (who has a VO2max of 91!) has a crack at the Hot Lap; in our Healthy Living Tips we talk about weight loss strategies for cyclists; and finally for “What’s on Your Mind” we discuss bunch riding etiquette.

In this episode we:

  • Discuss the appointment of Gerry Ryan as President and Adrian Anderson as interim CEO of Cycling Australia
  • Put your questions to Richie Porte
  • Chat to 2012 World Championship road race silver medallist Rachel Neylan about her rollercoaster of a season and what’s next for her
  • Learn some strategies for shedding those few extra kilos with Alan McCubbin, President of Sports Dietitians Australia, for the Healthy Living Tips
  • Talk about the etiquette of the bunch ride (for further reading, check out this piece: The Lost Art of the Group Ride)
  • Head to Yarra Boulevard to see how Australian middle distance runner Craig Mottram (who has a VO2max of 91!) goes at The Hot Lap
  • Remind that you can help us raise money for men’s health through our Movember efforts (see link below to donate).
