The Outspoken Cyclist – 6/7/2014

Two weeks in a row – Tim has another shout-out for a downed cyclist friend. So – we’re hoping we won’t need to have a third!

After our short commentary on the Maple Highlands Trail, which is right here in NE Ohio, we head on out to Montclair, New Jersey to speak with Cyndi Steiner. Cyndi is the Executive Director of the NJ Walk & Bike Coaltion. From getting the Port Authority of NY to stop before removing all access for bicyclists and pedestrians from the George Washington Bridge to working with World Bicycle Relief in Zambia, seeing first-hand what a bicycle can do for someone who might otherwise remain in abject poverty, Cyndi gets it DONE – with a capital D.

We then head on up to Quebec to speak with 6-time National CycloCross Champion Tim Johnson. Modest, smart, and without a doubt one of the “good guys” in our vast sport of cycling, Tim made the connection between pro cycling and advocacy at the 2010 National Bike Summit and found a new way to promote not just his sponsors and his sport, but the basic connection between the bicycle and those who ride at all levels.
