The Outspoken Cyclist 5/20/2017

This week Diane talks with Jim and Maria Parker from Cruz Bike. In addition to launching the T50, a new model, through a successful “Kickstarter” campaign, the discussion goes to their continued disappointment that USAT (U.S.A. Triathlon) won’t allow recumbent style bikes in sanctioned events.

Then, there’s the wonderful chat with Jamie Swan. A frame builder’s frame builder, a mechanic’s mechanic, and much more, Jamie is known for his dogged commitment to an exquisite result in everything he does. It’s a delightful conversation. We also talk about the Webb Institute and what Jamie does there.

Finally, a reminder to join the National Bike Challenge and record your miles. You can also record your voice for our NBC Stories. Just record a 3-4 minute piece, use the Voice Record Pro app or something similar telling us why you are riding the Challenge and what cycling means to you. We’ll choose twelve of them and air them over the next three months.
You can find out more on the NBC Facebook page.
