Becoming Ultra: Journeys into endurance cycling

Episode Summary

We're back for the second part of our winter bivvy in Oxfordshire with The Racing Collective, chatting about what happens when you take off road endurance riding to the extremes.

Episode Notes

From very different beginnings, both Philippa Battaye and Tom Probert are experienced endurance riders, having completed GBDURO, the Silk Road Mountain Race, numerous Transcontinental races, Further and Italy Divide to name just a few. But how do you get into this kind of racing, and what are the mistakes you learn from along the way? We huddled around the campfire with some whiskey and our friends to find out.
