The Outspoken Cyclist – 12/18/2010

This week’s main guest is someone who arguably knows more about all facets of building bicycles than most of us have forgotten, and he’s willing to share his knowledge and opinions freely in a very engaging manner. In addition to being a descendant of Ignaz Schwinn (founder of the Schwinn Bicycle Company), Richard Schwinn is co-founder of Waterford Precision Cycles, and we’ve got him on today’s show.

Rounding out the hour is an interview with Andre Husain of Team Hope, which is a four-man team training for RAAM 2011. Team Hope’s special reason for racing across America is the Blue Planet Network, dedicated to raising funds and awareness to help bring safe, clean drinking water to the 1 billion people worldwide who currently don’t have it.
