The Outspoken Cyclist – 08/17/2013

This week’s Outspoken Cyclist is the culmination of many months of planning and plotting to bring together five women who are either current or former professional bike racers, for a panel discussion on their experiences and expectations racing in the shadow of their male counterparts. The ladies often race the same courses at virtually the same speeds as the men (minus the high-profile cheating) and yet there is an order of magnitude of difference in the pay and media coverage. Why is that, and what will it take to change it? Well, that and many other questions are the subject of a full hour with five very smart and talented women racers.
