The Outspoken Cyclist – 03/09/2013

American Bicycle Group, parent company of the Litespeed and Quintana Roo brands normally builds stock frames, but one very special customer recently got a full custom design for a ride that was literally out of this world. Listen as Brad DeVaney, Engineering Manager for ABG talks about the company’s titanium work on NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover.

If you’ve ever been on a long ride and had your toes go numb, or experienced a “hot foot”, Dave and Jennifer Simmons have the answer for you. Simmons makes fully-custom, all-carbon cycling shoes based on a plaster cast of his customers’ feet. After listening to Dave, and checking out the website, the word that best describes these shoes is “want!”

Returning to Earth, we wrap up this week’s show with a conversation with Caeli Quinn, Ride Director for Climate Ride. Climate Ride is a non-profit organization that sponsors two week-long rides each year, with the aim of raising awareness and activism around sustainability, bike advocacy, and environmental causes. Think of it as a rolling, human-powered green symposium!
