Are you going through Tour De France withdrawals? Co host Lauren Diaz of Padres Pedal the Cause, helps breakdown all of the highlights and memories from the Tour including the dominance of Team Sky, the animators such as Dan Martin and Tom Dumoulin as well the inspiring rides of Lawson Craddock who finished last but broke his scapula on the first day of the Tour De France. On Stage 9, John Delkenkolb stunned his harshest critics by winning the cobbled stage after an almost career ending injury several seasons ago. We also explore what makes Peter Sagan so appealing both on and off the bike and look into the future for Tour De France winner Geraint Thomas.

Before there were massed produced carbon frames, individual frame builders regarded bicycles as true craft. Craig Gaulzetti of Gaulzetti cycles is a master frame builder and has moved his operation from the east coast to SoCal. We sit down with him and talk about the lost art of frame building as well as his model for running a boutique style bike shop. We explore shop owners place in the cycling world that is being overshadowed with an influx of online retailers. They carry exclusive brands such as Seven Cycles and Pegorreti in addition to his own line of custom frames.

If you love the Tour De France as well as hand crafted custom bicycles, we delve into both topics with a lot of passion and some humor. July has been synonymous with cycling and this is an episode you cannot miss!
