The return of The Bike Show sees Jack chewing the fat with Max Leonard, author of Higher Calling: Road Cycling’s Obsession with the Mountains. They talk a lot about climbing, bikepacking, the evolution of cycling towards exploring new places, about cycling in France, and about Max’s Kickstarter project to republish a long-lost cycling guide to the off-road paths and gravel tracks of the Alps.
Max is also the author of Lanterne Rouge: The Last Man in the Tour de France, The Men of Paris-Roubaix and City Cycling Europe.
You can back his Kickstarter for Rough Stuff Cycling in the Alps
