The Outspoken Cyclist – 08/18/2012

We’re cruisin’ like a fat-tire single-speed at the beach this week. Lots of news to tell you about, and two great guests. What could be better?

Hans Rey is a mountain biking legend who has a new coffee table book entitled A Life of Mountain Bike Adventures: 25 Years of Riding the World. He also runs a charity dedicated to providing bikes to people who need them in developing countries. Wheels 4 Life reflects Hans’ passion and integrity by maximizing the direct impact of every dollar donated.

Mike Magnuson is a writer, musician and cyclist, not necessarily in that order. He’s been a contributor to Bicycling magazine for many years, and his latest book is Bike Tribes: A Field Guide to North American Cyclists. Beyond all that, he’s a hell of a fun guy to shoot the breeze with, which is exactly what Diane did this week.

We found a lot of variety in the cycling news which ranges from triathlete deaths to Metroparks sharrows to 13-year old hit and run drivers to trail funding to Route 66. Grab something cold and wet, kick off those cleats and join us for a wild ride on this week’s Outspoken Cyclist.
