Talking Luft is back for another week of cycling culture chat, where I learn a little bit extra about my guest from last week and all the great things around riding a bike.

Last week on the podcast I had Peta Mullens, Australian champion in multiple bike disciplines, talking about her diverse career and following her passion through the ups and downs in the sport. It was a super inspiring chat and I loved learning more about Peta as well as her new role at Team Roxsolt Liv SRAM.

This week with Peta we dive into a bit of fun with Talking Luft – we chat cap style & kit style – where she makes a damning confession about her personal kit collection (or lack of), her favourite training loop, her favourite ever race on the road and trail, plus some incredible tales and an epic war story from enduro mountain bike race, Tour of East Timor.

If you loved her episode from last week you’ll love this one!

Enjoy and stay tuned for my episode next week with Cardiologist Andre LeGerche, where we talk heart adaptations in athletes, heart health with exercise and more.

Theme Music

The theme music for Life in the Peloton was composed by Pete Shelley, who was lead singer of the punk band Buzzcocks. It was commissioned by the production company behind Channel 4’s coverage of the Tour de France in the 1980s and was used as the theme music for the nightly highlights show. Pete died in December 2018. We were given permission by Pete’s widow and his manager to continue using the music for the theme tune to Life in the Peloton. To hear more about the music, listen to the Andre Greipel episode of Life in the Peloton.
