The Outspoken Cyclist – 03/16/2013

On the day before St. Patrick’s day, it’s fitting that we have as one of our guests, a good Irishman named Tim O’Donnell. Tim is the man behind Shamrock Cycles, which promises “hand built frames from the mountains of Indiana.”

In the racing department, there is a new professional stage race in North America this year: the Tour of Alberta. This UCI-sanctioned event will start in Edmonton on September 3rd, and end on September 8th in Calgary. Although no teams have been announced yet, the expectation is that more than a few elite pros from the TdF will be at the start line. Race Director Duane Vinneau is on the show this week to tell us all about it.

Finally, as part of the NAHBS report series, Diane talks with Toni Smith, who owns and operates Baileyworks Bags up in New Hampshire. Toni is a multi-faceted individual who is dedicated to making high-quality, functional products right here in the U.S.A.
