Show #71 – December 31. 2011
It’s the last day of 2011, and time to look back on another year of cycling, tally up our annual mileage, and try to figure out what might be in store for us in 2012.
The Outspoken Cyclist has interviewed a number of framebuilders this year, and each one has an interesting back story, and philosophy on designing and building a fine bicycle. This week’s first guest has both of those qualities in spades. Carl Strong, proprietor of Strong Frames joins us to talk about how he came to the bicycle business, and how he decided to build in steel, titanium, and (gasp!) carbon fiber.
After a wrap up of the 2011 cycling news, I get my annual chance to interview Diane. We did this on our New Year’s show in 2010, and it was both enjoyable and informative. So we decided to give it another go this year. Our topic this time around is yoga. I’m sure you’ll learn something; I know I did! Who knows, yoga might be the new thing you try in 2012.
On behalf of Diane and myself, thanks for listening this past year; we wish you health, happiness, and many safe and smiling miles on your bike in 2012, whether you’re commuting, racing, recreating, or simply exploring your neighborhood.
