The Outspoken Cyclist – 03/02/2013

NAHBS wasn’t the only game in town last weekend. While the framebuilders were busy depleting Denver’s strategic beer reserve, a group of cycling advocates and educators were huddled in Orlando, Florida, for the first-ever I Am Traffic colloquium. On this week’s TOC, one of the prime movers behind I Am Traffic, Dan Gutierrez talks about his work as a cycling educator and advocate, and fills us in on the colloquium.

From the practical to what some would say is the extreme, in the second half of the show Diane welcomes solo RAAM finisher Dex Tooke and his wife and crew chief Joni Tooke. Dex and Joni hail from Del Rio, Texas, and in addition to being a 60-some-year-old ultra-distance racer, Dex has written a book about RAAM, entitled Unfinished Business. He also directs a 32-hour race in west Texas called No Country for Old Men. While it’s true that Dex was the one turning the pedals for 3,000 miles to complete RAAM, read a bit of his book and you’ll see that it never would have happened without Joni’s fanatical planning and discipline.
