The Outspoken Cyclist – 10/26/2013

Now that Lance Armstrong has confessed to most of his misdeeds, the other people who were either participants or victims are free to tell their stories. Hence, the current crop of movies and books about Pharmstrong, Inc. One such book is the recently released Wheelmen by Wall Street Journal reporters Reed Albergotti and Vanessa O’Connell. Albergotti joins Diane on today’s show to talk about the book, and his views on cycling as an amateur racer.

After a break and a condensed wrap-up of the news, we welcome back Thomas Bowden of Bike Virginia. Thomas was recently a participant in a test run of Amtrak’s experimental Roll-On, Roll-Off (RORO) program, where cyclists can take their bikes on the train without disassembling or boxing them as is the current policy. The RORO service is currently available on the Capitol Limited between Washington, DC and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Thomas also weighs in on the recent NY Times blog entry about the relative safety of cycling (and the relative dangers of not cycling).
