The Outspoken Cyclist – 04/14/2012

Look in your thesaurus and you’ll see this week’s guests listed as synonyms for “eclectic”.

Bill Humphreys, aka “Bike Guy” has racing roots that go back to the Raleigh days in the early 1970′s, becoming a member of the first American team to race in Europe. Lately, he’s been working on something called The Jersey Project, a photo history book devoted to cycling jerseys from teams and clubs in Europe and the U.S. Neither cyclists like Bill, nor jerseys like the ones in his book are being made anymore! Be sure to check out Bill’s excellent blog.

John Campo, aka “Campocat” rounds out our show today with a free-wheeling conversation about music, guitars, and oh by the way, track cycling. John is a well-traveled and successful jazz and folk musician who was also instrumental in restoring the Kissena Park Velodrome in Flushing, Queens. And, we even get to hear John perform a couple of tunes for us!
