Bike Touring Podcasts?

Any good ones out there? Either about the gear, ethos etc of touring or actual reports from the road would be interesting.

Wish I could help, I've been looking for one for a long time now. The only thing I found was from Bicycle Touring 101, but it was just a "new articles" RSS feed, and I haven't gotten anything in months.

Hummmmm. Amazing there isn't something out there, but I am coming to the same conclusion. Well, maybe mine will be the first. I wanted to do a podcast for our world tour, maybe interview some cyclists I meet on the road too. Describe my experiences camping, cooking on the road, the routes we take. I thought I'd listen to what was already being done but I'm coming up with little.

Just what it sounds like -- have quit our jobs, just working out our notice now and leaving on Sept 4 for an indefinite period on the road in a 'round the world' kind of way. Not that I'm promising to circumnavigate the globe, but husband and I hope to touch on several dozen countries anyway

I'm a journalist and want to do some podcasting on the road, to keep some kind of current portfolio and also just to give me a project to focus on

I'd definetly listen to that. I've been following the blogs from CC4C:

http://www.crosscountryforcancer.org/

I can't get enough of these. I'm hoping to do a CA to GA trek, but it probably won't be for at least another 5 or 10 years. In the meantime I'll live vicariously through everyone else that is lucky enough to do it.

These aren't bike-touring specific podcasts (though one is about a tour), but instead focus on lightweight backpacking:

Backpackinglight.co.uk Podcast link

Some recent 'casts:

Andy Howell joins me for his first tarp and bivi trip on the Long Mynd hills in August. In the process we use various bits of gear such as the Triad stove and discuss the practicality of bivi camping in the UK. If you have never tried it and wondered what it might be like, Andy looks at it from a first time point of view. One lighthearted fun podcast! Click here to listen

Mark and Ruth Johnstone are back from their epic single speed, cycle trip through Spain and France. 75 days, 5000 kms and a climbing total of 100,000 feet means they are fit, tanned and totally chilled out! Listen for the full story, the route they took and how all the gear performed. Did they take too little or too much? All will be revealed ..... Click here to listen

Thanks! Someone else pointed this out as well -- that's pretty much all I've seen. I found a few videos on you tube but nothing much.

Everything else seems to focus on racing in general or the tour de france.... maybe most people don't carry the gear needed to do a cast on the road? That doesn't explain the lack of casts focusing on touring in general though.

Will let you know if I end up producing stuff from the road.
