The Outspoken Cyclist – 05/12/2012

Here in Ohio, Mother’s Day weekend marks the beginning of the touring season with TOSRV. The Outspoken Cyclist is doing its part by bringing you a trio of great interviews from all over the cycling map.

First up, we welcome to the studio Rick Smith and Brian Griggs, co-creators of Yehuda Moon and the Kickstand Cyclery, a thrice-weekly slice of cycling life in web comic form. And, they’re based right here in Cleveland!

May is also “bicycle to everything” month, and Robert Ping is here to talk about Safe Routes to School. Robert has some great insights on kids biking, walking and what’s needed to encourage more of both.

And we wrap up with the skinny on the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame from past president and current board member Bill Brunner. Bill knows who’s in the 2012 class of inductees, and although he can’t tell us that, he does reveal pretty much everything else about the Cycling HoF.
