Joining James and Joe this week is Chris Boardman, Olympic champion, Tour de France yellow jersey wearer, Hour Record holder, Greater Manchester walking and cycling commissioner, Question Time guest and everything in between.
Boardman talks us through how the pandemic changed cycling, what's stopping those at the top backing cycling and how embracing two wheels is our only way out of this current crisis and the best way of avoiding the next one, climate change.
We also discuss Boardman's brief stint working in his local Halfords last year, aerodynamically testing 10,000 materials including fur and sequins for the 2008 Olympic Games and getting only one portion of free chips for becoming an Olympic Champion.
