Show #65 – November 19, 2011
Guests: Steve Garro, Coconino Cycles; Amy Walker, author and co-found Momentum Magazine
Cyclists are so creative and resilient! Certainly we don’t have a monopoly on those traits, but most cyclists I meet are doing innovative, or at least interesting things. To wit…
Take for example Steve Garro of Coconino Cycles. Steve quickly brushed off a 45 mph encounter between his bicycle and a 1967 pickup truck to return to building custom bike frames and tending fruit trees in Flagstaff, Arizona. He also kayaks and rides an off-road hand-cycle, among other activities. You can hear the rest of Steve’s story as he’s our first guest on this week’s show.
If you’re looking for a good bicycle-related read this winter, look no further than a new book edited by our second guest, Amy Walker. Amy is one of the founders of Momentum magazine, and she enlisted the help of some fellow creative cyclist types to produce On Bicycles: 50 Ways the New Bike Culture Can Change Your Life. It’s got the Steven Bilenky seal of approval, but you don’t have to take his word for it; Amy’s is our second guest on The Outspoken Cyclist this week.
