The Outspoken Cyclist – 05/19/2012

May is National Bike Month, and the season is just getting into full swing for a lot of riders. But in between all that riding, ya gotta keep up with what’s going on, right? Never fear, The Outspoken Cyclist is here to maximize your intake of cyclinformation.

Aaron Gulley participates in, and writes about athletic pursuits of all types for a number of publications, including Outside Magazine. Listen as he describes his path as a journalist, and some of his favorite topics.

Ellee Thalheimer is another great example of an immersion writer. She brings a rich history of adventure travel and cycle touring to her new book Cycling Sojourner: A Guide to the Best Multi-Day Tours in Oregon.

And finally, we wrap up with a visit from three “repeat offenders” on The Outspoken Cyclist: framebuilders Josh Symonds, Mike Zancanato, and Richard Sachs. They’re here to talk about their upcoming Baller’s Ride, happening May 25th – 27th in Virginia.
