If You Like Cycling, You’ll Love the FredCast
I’ve mentioned on this blog how much I enjoy Bicycling Magazine. It has great information and is particularly well-written. A few weeks ago, while getting the iPod ready for an upcoming business trip, I decided to give Podcasts another look.
I’m very glad I did because I discovered another excellent source for all the latest and greatest cycling info — the FredCast. The FredCast is all about cycling. It covers news, professional racing, reviews and tips for endurance cyclists. Particular attention is paid to “high-zoot” bikes and gear, which is fine with me, so long as I’m not driven to actually purchase any of it. The host is also a major Mac geek, which I appreciate now that I’ve pretty much drunk that Kool Aid.
On my flight from Seattle to Calgary, I found myself getting into the FredCast so much, I was actually disappointed that my flight wasn’t longer (and I was on one of those little Horizon Air Turbo prop planes, so that’s saying quite a lot). If you use an iPod or iPhone, you can download the FredCast via iTunes. If not, you can go to the FredCast Website and download it as an MP3 file, or just listen online. The FredCast is put out weeklyish and is free. Check it out.
