The Outspoken Cyclist
Have you ever heard the term, “walking quadriplegic”? I hadn’t – but we have a lengthy conversation with Jenny McCune whose 2007 bike crash led to a severe spinal injury. Yet, today she is not only walking again, she is riding. We also have lots of news and conversation this week. I believe we have a thoughtful and fascinating show!
Professor Eric Goff explains how he can predict the winning times of all the TdF stages – long in advance of the event. Bike lawyer Steve Magas catches us up with the recent statistics and what’s going on with cycling here in our state – Ohio.
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!
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?
