In episode 12, hosts Norman Blissett and Chris Foggin hear from Suzanne Forup, Head of Development for Cycling UK in Scotland and share our awe of Danny MacAskill's latest video.
Suzanne is one of the top 100 women in cycling in the UK and an active campaigner to get more women on their bikes. She shares some of her life in cycling and how we can encourage more women to cycle.
Last year, she rode the Herring Road, a 29 mile (47km) trail over the Lammermuir Hills in South East Scotland, from Dunbar to Lauder. In the 18th and 19th century, fishwives from Dunbar walked and ran the trail in a day with 50lbs (20kgs) of herring on their backs. For comparison, It took Suzanne 11 hours ride and was her hardest day on a bike.
If you haven't watched Danny MacAskill's latest video, The Slabs, make sure you check it out on You Tube. He rides down the Dubh Slabs on the Cuillin Mountains in Skye, Scotland. Utterly breathtaking. We share our awe in the podcast.
