The Competitive Impulse

Harriet Owen following Lydia Boylan

Why do some people like to race their bicycles? We discuss the world of amateur bicycle racing with Ian Cleverly, deputy editor of Rouleur magazine and Lydia Boylan (pictured, above) of the Look Mum No Hands! race team and current Irish national track sprint champion. We also hear from Dr Jo Corbett of Portsmouth University on his findings about how the competitive impulse can drive people to new heights of athletic performance.

You can check out the Rouleur podcast over here or find it in iTunes music store.
