THIS EPISODE Mike welcomes back old friend and bon vivant Ted King to rehash old times and talk all things Kombucha, compression socks, and how to lose Twitter followers without even trying.
The two-time Tour de France starter shares some of the highs and lows of his season, the glamorous life of being on the road, maple syrup connoisseurship, and how much he loves riding his bike.
Their hour and a half conversation is wild, wacky, and freewheeling, and the minutes melt away as you’re sucked into the witty banter between two highly intelligent and slightly narcissistic bike dudes with a great deal of affection and respect for one another.
