The Outspoken Cyclist – 5/6/2017

My first guest this week is Reverend Laura Everett.  Her new book, Holy Spokes – The Search for Urban Spirituality on Two Wheels.  takes her background as a pastor, combines it with an abiding love for year-round cycling, and adds the spiritual teachings of Brother Lawrence to offer up an insightful and beautifully written book that combines her religious background with a secular perspective.

Dissecting the bike into its concrete parts, Reverend Laura equates each part with a down-to-earth look at life that I found enlightening.

Then, we check in with the Katelynn and Chris, two of the owners of Vari-Wall in Columbiana, Ohio.  Founded in 1985, the company specializes in resolving tubular design problem and is upping its game in the bicycle tubing arena.  Offering air hardened steel tubes, Vari-Wall is looking to expand its market to frame builders – just as True Temper steps away.

Lastly, I have a delightful conversation with recently retired pro racer Phil Gaimon.  Always brutally honest and usually hilarious, we talk about how and why he retired, the reasons bicycle racing isn’t so “all that”, and about his new book, Ask A Pro: Deep Thought and Unreliable Advice from America’s Foremost Cycling Sage.  We talk about cookies too!
