The Outspoken Cyclist – 11/09/2013

Admit it, as cyclists we’re always on the lookout for that magic device that will coax a few more watts out of our hearts, lungs, and legs. Ken Sparks, Ph.D. and Nick Stevovich from right here in Cleveland are developing and testing a new pedal system that might do just that. Inspired by the sideways leg motion of inline skating, Pedal Resolution takes advantage of some leg muscles not used in the traditional cycling motion. Ken and Nick are here with us today to talk about the details, and when you might be able to get a pair for your bike.

The sixth annual San Francisco Bike Expo is coming up next Saturday, November 16th at the Cow Palace. Admission is free, and the doors open at 11:00 am. Phillip Segura, the director of the expo chatted with Diane about all the cool things to see and do next weekend for bike aficionados on the west coast.

Michael “Mac” McCoy was one of the original cross-country bicycle tourists back in the 1970′s, and now works with Adventure Cycling and BikeOvernights.org. The second edition of his book, Cycling the Great Divide: from Canada to Mexico on America’s Premier Long-Distance Mountain Bike Route has just been published. Mac rounds out the second half of the show to talk about the origins of bicycle touring, and what to expect when mountain biking the off-road Great Divide.
