Rouleur conversations podcast: The Midlife Cyclist

Grow old. Get Fast. Don't die. Bio-mechanics expert Phil Cavell on staying fit and healthy into our middle ages and beyond

Grow old. Get Fast. Don't die. Good words to live by, and the original working title of Phil Cavell's book The Midlife Cyclist. Phil is best known as the co-founder and CEO of high-end London bike store Cyclefit, and a leading expert on the science and bio-mechanics of cycling. Phil talks us through the realities of staying fit and fast past forty, fifty and over; why the current generation of older riders are nature's crash-test dummies and why biological evolution will probably see women routinely outperform men at endurance events.
