S9 Ep209: Explore | The 12 hills of Christmas

The Cycling Podcast

Explore usually takes riders a little further afield than just a few kilometres from their home but in this episode Lionel Birnie sets out on his familiar festive route in the eastern edge of the Chilterns. On the route are 12 hills and so this is the 12 hills of Christmas, a 90-kilometre route peppered with short climbs. While Christmas is a time for celebrations, lightheartedness and joy it's also a time for reflection on the year almost passed. Regular listeners will know Lionel missed a big chunk of the season and cancelled his Tour d'Écosse series for Explore at very short notice. While the roads may be reassuringly familiar, he also takes the time to explore less comfortable territory as he talks about his mental health and what happened this year.
