It might be an oldie – but’s it a goodie! We’re airing our April 30, 2011 show with engineers Andy Ruina and Jim Papdopoulis and frame builder Mark Nobilette. I’m recouping from my regenerative stem cell therapy procedure and will be back with you next week! If you are new to the show you will enjoy these interviews; if you heard them before, I believe they are worth listening to again!
The Outspoken Cyclist
Cyclist, swimmer, actor, rock climber, and more Connor Long has Down Syndrome. Obviously, it doesn’t stop him from ANYTHING! We talk with him today on his 21st birthday as he rides to raise funds for research. Then off to Durham NC to learn about the East Coast Greenway from Executive Director Dennis Markatos-Soriano.
It’s LiveUpdateGuy Charles Pelkey talking TdF and more. And, Peter Rice gives us his ideas about bicycle touring – often a bit unconventional but mostly right-on. His new book’s title might give you a hint. “Spandex Optional”
BMC’s Tour de France Sport Director Jackson Stewart talks about his team and the race prior to Stage One. President of Rails to Trails Keith Laughlin talks about the federal transportation bill, the country’s first rail-trail, and how technology is impacting the Rails to Trails organization.
Renowned yoga teacher and endurance athlete Sage Rountree talks about her new book Everyday Yoga; Nation TT Champion and Olympic hopeful Carmen Small tells about racing with the boys
Dr. Jamin Brahmbhatt tells us about drive4menshealth.com and how their 60+ city tour in a Tesla is bringing the message to pay attention to your health to thousands of men, who can name their first car but can’t tell you the last time they went to a physician. Then, we talk with John Eustice from Spara Cycling and the Thompson Bucks County Bicycle Classic.
It’s our 250th Show! And, I have two outstanding encore interviews for you. Michael Aisner is best known for his work with the Red Zinger and Coors Classic series; but, that would barely scratch the surface of his work. Gary Helfrich is considered the “father of titanium” and the genius behind the famous Arctos Frame jigs. But, how about his 10 years as a roadie?
Dr. Roger Kruse and Dr. Zach Mellion talk about regenerative medicine; Dave Chauner gives us some pro-cycling history, a look a the World Cycling League, and we chat about his novel High Road: Chasing the Yellow Jersey
Two “feel good” interviews are up this evening. First, Sam Fox who is the outreach and engagement officer for the Michael J. Fox Foundation, raising millions of dollars for Parkinson’s Disease research. Then, we speak with Jamie Bianchini about his 80 country, 8 year journey traveling with his best friend and two tandems as they bring a message of “getting stuff done” to all they meet.
RKP’s Patrick Brady talks about Pink Gate and his newest commentary, Too Many White Guys. Jackie Crowell updates us on her life as a cyclist and a cancer patient as well as the new understanding to which she has come about her role in both.
