Tyre Tracks & Tunes

Tyre Tracks And Tunes - About

The Tyre Tracks and Tunes podcast comes from a love of adventure, bikes and music. For 15 years I have been exploring the UK by bike, usually trying to avoid main roads where possible. With a varied community of biking friends, it’s surprising that many of my adventures have been done solo. So, I decided that by taking a microphone, I could share my experiences, discoveries and mishaps with my imaginary bike companions. That’s you!

How do I decide where to go? Well, I’m interested in music and how it is often rooted in the landscape and inspired by place. In these podcast episodes I take my bike adventures to the places that have inspired music and I hope to discover why they were so inspirational.

Are you interested in bike gear, chainsets, top of the range bike bags and gearing ratios? You’ll not get any of that here. This podcast is about adventure whether you carry a full set of frame bags or a bin liner attached with bungie cord, I hope this inspires you to get out and explore with your bike as well as your ears. There’ll be no videos here either. I hope to paint you a picture in sound. If you want to know what it looks like for real, get out there. My GPS maps are all available for you to see… mistakes and all.
