The Outspoken Cyclist – 08/04/2012

August has arrived, and here on the (relatively) temperate north coast, that means peak season for local triathlons. The TOC crew (and their animals, I’m told) will be on hand to cheer for friends at the Greater Cleveland Triathlon tomorrow morning at Headlands State Park.

How appropriate then, that our first guest today is IronMadMan Ryan Schneider, who also writes for LAVA Magazine, (and has a day job in the video game industry). Ryan describes himself as the world’s least likely triathlete, and he maintains that anyone with the right motivation and dedication can complete an IronMan. Great stuff!

After the break and some news, Diane welcomes back Steve Magus, the Ohio Bike Lawyer to the show. In addition to his legal practice based in Cincinnati, Steve analyzes bicycle fatalities to see what really happened and if the law enforcement agencies got the story right. Steve also has great statistics that you can use to reduce your risk on the road.
