Satisfying his constant need for attention, Mike Creed takes to the airwaves to have frank conversations with his friends, who just so happen to be figures in the world of pro cycling. Now that he's a retired mediocre bike racer, he's using his access to these athletes to humanize them, show you what he sees, and bring back a personal aspect to cycling. This is not the show for you if you're looking for controversy and the hard questions. It's more of a rambling conversation with and about the people and the sport that he loves.

THIS EPISODE Mike grabs a bite to eat and chew the fat with old friend Shawn Milne (along with interloper Ian MacGregor of Skratch Labs). Milne recently culminated his road racing career with 5-Hour Energy p/b Kenda to become the new team director of Team Rio Cycling, a Colorado-based development cycling team. In addition to his prestigious palmares on the road, the Gloucester native also races cyclocross for the Keough Cyclocross team, where this past season he won at Cycle-Smart International and NBX Gran Prix of Cross.

In between bites at Yellowbelly Chicken in Boulder, the trio reflect on the past, discuss the critical differences between cyclocross and road racing, have a vent-fest about some of the less wonderful team experiences they've had, and Shawn reminisces on his New England racing achievements and what it was like to live a hardscrabble life as the son of a fisherman.

We also learn of Shawn's love of Ducati motorcycles, the good old days racing with Creed, and what this next chapter holds in store for them both as team directors.

Enjoy this insightful and intriguing conversation among old friends over good food and laughter. We sure did.

THIS EPISODE Mike sits down to chat with pro cyclist/athlete/journalist/activist/filmmaker Kathryn Bertine, whose groundbreaking documentary, "Half the Road," about the passions, pitfalls and power of women's professional cycling recently premiered to a sold-out audience in Tucson, AZ (a premiere which, sadly, Mike was unable to get into...)

They talk about the nascency of the documentary project, Kathryn's frustration with "sports journalism for women" as a separate media thread, the popularity of obscure Olympic sports, and what it was like to be a sports journalist for ESPN.

Throughout, Kathryn delights and entertains Mike with her fascinating stories, and in the process illuminates us all with respect to the challenges facing women in sports to this day.

You will absolutely love this clever and engaging interview with one of the most influential women working in the realm of cycling today.

THIS EPISODE Mike settles in for a chat with women's cycling legend Meredith Miller in January, just before U.S. Cyclocross Nationals in her hometown of Boulder, CO. You will be hearing this conversation after the Cal Giant star stood on the bronze medal step of the podium there, and just as she's prepping for Hoogerheide, Belgium, to compete in the UCI World Cyclocross Championships.

Recently retired from road racing, the Alabama native had a successful 15-year road career, most recently with Team TIBCO, that included winning the 2009 USA National Road Championship. Miller announced that 2013 would be her last as a professional road cyclist. How that decision will affect her future as a cyclocross racer is still unclear at this point, and Worlds will likely play a large part in that decision.

Over the course of an hour and a half conversation, Mike and Meredith go from being acquainted strangers to fast friends as they discover common interests, debate the merits of Facebook stalkers and the games that get invented around them, and reminisce about the early years of Meredith's road racing career. We also learn that fast-pitch softball and soccer were Meredith's first competitive sports, it was romance that introduced her to cycling, and living in Denmark that led to her first foray as a pro road racer.

Along the way they talk about the lure of retirement, the scary prospect of life after bike racing, and what jobs ex-cyclists are qualified for.

The M's also get into some hypothetical discussions about how they would improve the state of women's cycling, and other plans to save the world.

You're going to absolutely love this entertaining and fascinating glimpse into the world of one of the preeminent cyclists in the United States.

THIS EPISODE Mike shoots the breeze with old friend and best man Pat McCarty, who has spun his cranks for such teams as US Postal, Phonak, Slipstream-Chipotle, OUCH-Maxxis, SpiderTech-C10, and most recently Bissell. Along with guest interloper Shawn Milne, Mike and Pat wax philosophical on all sorts of fascinating topics including the future, what it's like to be directing a women's cycling team, surviving the Giro not once but twice, getting drunk with Andy Rihs, the wacky times at Ouch/Maxxis and Rock Racing, and good Cipo stories (who doesn't love a good Cipo story?).

We also get some choice intro moments from Team Smart Stop p/b Mountain Khakis ace mechanic Chris Kreidl, and become privy to yet another of Mike's embarrassing confessions.

THIS EPISODE Coming to you live from Team SmartStop-Mountain Khakis training camp in Tucson, AZ, it's Mike's old friend Mike "Meatball" Friedman, a multi-time national champion and 2008 Olympic cyclist, most recently of Optum Pro Cycling p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies.

Over the course of an hour and a half of reminiscing, they cover such diverse topics as guns, bleached hair, Friedman being intimidated by Creed and Pate, racing in Tasmania, the nuances of track cycling, team pursuit, and the Madison, as well as being at the Olympics and calling the cops on anti-cyclist zealots.

And somewhere in there we learn even more about Creed's youthful fervor for Pace salsa.

You're sure to be dazzled, entertained, and thoroughly confused by this high-energy conversation between two old friends and former teammates.

We hope you enjoy this intriguing conversation with a legend in women's cycling. We certainly did.

IN THIS EPISODE Mike sits down for a chat with Mara Abbott (that's with two b's and two t's), the first American ever to win the Giro Donne, one of the Grand Tours of women's bicycle racing. In between trading smoothie recipes and Twitter stalking confessions, they discuss favorite places to cycle, Mara's Game of Thrones addiction, strategies for making riding the trainer more interesting, and which of them is the bigger dork.

Mara shares the story of her love affair with triathlon, what it was like to quit being a bike racer and then come back and win one of the biggest races in women's cycling, and the dangers of self-sabotage. And somewhere along the way, an interloper in the bookstore where they're chatting walks into the middle of the podcast recording and steps on their conversation to amusing results. They also consider the merits of loneliness, the benefits of cycling fame, and why who you are is more important than what you do.

You're sure to be intrigued and charmed by this chance to get to know one of the superstars of women's cycling just a little bit better.

Their conversation meanders over topics including motivation, goals, hopes, dreams, and Bourbon as a truth serum. Enjoy this postscript to a career that's really a glimpse at the doorway to the future.

THIS EPISODE Mike talks to Dean Golich, the training guru who was a physiologist for USA Cycling from 1994-1996 and established training protocols for the 1996 Olympic Cycling Team across all cycling disciplines. Dean has been working with athletes in road cycling, MTB, cyclocross, motocross, supercross, MotoGP, and NASCAR, and is a wealth of knowledge about physiology, power training, altitude training, and hydration.

Their conversation runs the gamut from leftist politics, wingsuits, death spirals, coaching, motivation and Dean's acknowledgment that even though he'd never listened to any of the podcasts prior to his interview, this is the podcast's sophomore slump.

Thoughtful, intriguing, and extremely entertaining, you're sure to enjoy this sort of long, slightly cerebral, but really good chat between two fascinating characters. You can follow Dean on twitter @Deangolich.

THIS EPISODE Mike settles in for dinner and conversation with the one-line wit of Twitter, the rational anchor to Tour Chat's bon vivant Neil Browne, the bard at the back of Velo Magazine, the one and only Mr. Dan Wuori, aka @dwuori.

Many of you first came to know of Dan via his lanterne rouge Twitter avatar and his extremely witty and clever Twitter jokes - one line wonders that encapsulate the zeitgeist of the cycling world on everyone's favorite 140-character thoughtstream. Much like the standup routine of Creed's Twitter account, Dan's tweets primarily consist of standalone jokes that tickle the funny bone and engage the grey matter. It was this clever ability to tweet that which everyone else wished they'd thought of first that brought Dan to the attention of mainstream cycling media, and led to a happy partnership with VeloNews.com and Velo Magazine, a dream come true in some respects for the humble and hardworking Wuori.

Over the course of their mealtime chat, which I've affectionately dubbed "My Dinner with Dwuori," Mike and Dan talk about everything and anything that strikes their fancy – including journalism, John Tesh, and the Hunger Games – in what must surely be one of the more interesting dinners in recent cycling history.
