The Outspoken Cyclist – 11/6/2010

Cycling from both historical and current perspectives is on tap for The Outspoken Cyclist this week.

We begin with a conversation with David V. Herlihy, who was in town on Wednesday to promote his new book, The Lost Cyclist about Frank Lenz’s attempt to ride around the world in 1882.

Moving to the present day, Diane chats with champion mountain biker Brian Lopes, who has just written an excellent guide to two-wheeled off-roading entitled Mastering  Mountain Bike Skills.

And finally, what will the shift in political power brought about by the 2010 mid-term elections mean for cycling and other transportation? Diane checks in with Lois Moss of Walk+Roll, and Jim Sayre of Adventure Cycling.
