He just completed a 5000km ride across Central Asia and, since he’s home visiting his folks, and having his trusty steed serviced, I thought I’d snag him and have a chat about living, working, and riding down under. Matt will be with me later in the show. With The New England Builder’s Ball only one week away, I thought we could take a few minutes to catch up with show director Eric Weis – so he could slow down, take a breath, and give us any last minute updates before we all head out to Boston...

First up this week is a conversation with a 6-time Emmy award winning photographer, videographer, producer, and journalist. Scott Ogle is not only all of that, he is hilarious! He and I discuss his work and some of the wild and whacky things that happen at a pro race like the Tour de France as well as some of his more eclectic ideas about cycling, food, and his lovely little dog Misha. After our break, we head on out to New Jersey to speak with coach and motivational trainer Michael O’Brien. I read and review a lot of books about cycling every year; and, this week I read the...

For those who do not know him, I’ll run down a few facts: He IS the editor and publisher at Bicycle Quarterly, which is celebrating its 15th year with the Autumn edition – #61. Even in this day of and instant and abundant news, every issue of BQ is eagerly awaited and devoured by its devoted fans. It is the only bicycle magazine that does not depend upon advertising, relying solely on its subscribers. Out of his journalistic work has come the development of a bevy of products in the “Compass” store. He is the one of the major forces...

In fact, it’s IN Hart – Hart, Michigan. Patrice Martin and her husband Allan did their due diligence before retiring and learned not only how to run a B&B, but how to attract cyclists as well as other outdoors people with their lovely bedroom spaces, their 3-course breakfasts, and the amenities they provide. The B&B is located just three blocks from the Hart-Montague Bicycle Trail, Michigan’s first rail-trail. Then, off to California where we catch up with the “man of many hats” Richard Fries. Richard is taking a couple of days to...
