The Outspoken Cyclist – 2/14/2015

Happy Valentine’s Day!

This is it! Your last chance to pledge your support for Radiothon 2015. Please take a moment to support our work and the work of the station. The on line portal will remain open until noon on Wednesday, February 18th. We won’t hassle you again for another whole year; but, your support means so much to the success of the show, the volunteers who pour their hearts and souls into the work, and the state-of-the-station to maintain some of the highest quality programming on the air today!

Soooo – NE Ohio has a new women’s cycling team! And, we are pleased to have team members Jane Geisse, Laura Webb, and Sally Price on the show this evening along with their generous sponsor Matt Litzler. Team Velo-Femme-Litzler consists of elite women whose goal is not only riding and racing together, but also these women plan to highlight women’s cycling locally, regionally, and nationally in disciplines ranging from track and crit to road and time trial.

After a break and some news, we head on out to California to catch up with mountain bike hall of fame inductee, coach, mom, and just about the most energetic woman cyclist in the U.S.! Leigh Donovan was here in NE Ohio last weekend for her annual women’s clinics at Ray’s Mountain Bike Park and more than 200 women and girls – from 4 to 60+ – showed up in the cold and snow to learn how to handle and race your mountain bike.

Leigh’s web site, highlights all her work – leadership, experience, instruction, giving, and how to’s – to show an incredibly successful, energetic, and committed woman.
