Read the full press-release below!
Join Katherine Moore and Tom Bonnett as they travel the length and breadth of the UK, seeking out the very best off road riding in the wild and wonderful British Isles. They’re seeking out the riders, route experts and gear designers that help you get the most out of leaving the tarmac behind.
Unpaved Podcast’s introductory series of four episodes explores the fundamental concepts of what it means to ride off road; exploring cycling history, how new communities are being born all over the country and how attitudes are changing more than they have done in decades. Unpaved investigates what happens when riders take this growing discipline of riding to the extremes and how the cycling industry is responding to the surging all-terrain appetite. Unpaved is not a studio podcast. Host and producer duo Katherine and Tom join their guests as they showcase the very best of their local gravel, come snow, rain or shine. With each episode, the route and highlights are shared on the Unpaved komoot account so that listeners can go and enjoy the locals’ best off road trails all over the UK too.
Podcasts guests from this series include some of the fascinating people behind The Woods Cyclery, Brother Cycles, Pannier.cc, Second City Divide, The Bicycle Academy, Mercredi Bikes, The Racing Collective and current pro road racer, Lachlan Morton. Unpaved Podcast is supported by komoot, the route planning and navigation app that helps people plan, enjoy and share better adventures. During the series, Unpaved Podcast will be sharing their komoot experiences and tips, as well as the opportunity for listeners to win tickets to popular off road events based in the UK.
