The Outspoken Cyclist – 11/20/2010

It’s Lost and Found week on the Outspoken Cyclist. We lost track of a scheduled guest (Joe Kurmaskie) and happily found another one (Jake Jacobson from Garmin (the GPS company, not the cycling team)). In any event, Jake joins us to talk about the new Garmin Edge 800 cyclecomputer/GPS/espresso maker.

And in the second half of the show, Diane gets to talk to a very special guest, Dr. Eric Heiden. Eric holds 5 gold medals in Olympic long-track speed skating, and was a founding member of Team 7-Eleven. He’s now an orthopedic surgeon practicing sports medicine along with his wife in Park City, Utah.

And not to worry, Joe Kurmaskie (the Metal Cowboy) was merely out of cell phone range in ‘gorges’ Ithaca, New York. We’ve got him lined up for our Thanksgiving show next week.Links from the news in this week’s show:
