Rouleur is a highly acclaimed bi-monthly cycling magazine. It brings together leading cycling writers and photographers to convey the essence and imagery of road racing. Rouleur features photography and serious writing celebrating the passion and beauty of the sport and has built a dedicated and valuable following from both discerning cycling fans and the most influential bike riders in the world. The magazine appeals to those who, like us, are passionate about the sport, but don't want to read bike tests and race reports. Instead, the magazine focuses on exquisite photography and writing that really gets under the skin of the great riders and theatres of road racing. The Rouleur podcast is brought to you by Mosquito Bikes, London’s custom made bicycle specialists. See the range in the flesh at 123 Essex Road, London N1 2SN or on the screen at mosquito-bikes.co.uk.

Gives some very interesting background to the images and articles of this fantastic magazine.
I have still not worked out if Rouleur is too pretentious, however will keep buying it as it seem to be getting better and better
I really like the idea of having this as a podcast and who better to host then Jack Thurston. I'm a big fan of The Bike Show on Resonance FM and here Jack applies his usual brilliant interviewing style. Rouleur is a beautifully crafted magazine and this podcast only adds to the readers overall experience and enjoyment.
A great podcast bringing cycling thought-provoking conversation and an excellent background to the magazine. Well worth a listen.
