The Outspoken Cyclist – 07/28/2012

Your bike won’t roll without tires, and what would cycling be without kids to remind us of our roots? We’ve got both this week on the show.

Richard Goodwin joins us to talk about Hutchinson, one of the oldest surviving makers of bicycle equipment. Hutchinson is still manufacturing tires in France, and they are one of the leaders in tubeless technology for bicycles.

The Richmond Cycling Corps is just a couple years old, but their motto “Can’t Stop. Won’t Stop.” is a testament to their determination to use cycling to get kids from Richmond, Virginia out of public housing. Director Craig Dodson is one of the most passionate people you’ll ever meet, and we’ll hear from him about what Richmond Cycling Corps is doing, how, and why.
