This week’s show presses the reset button, and turns the Fun Dial up to 11, with two great interviews that speak to the joy of cycling. First up is author Steven Rea who has written a new book: Hollywood Rides a Bike: Cycling with the Stars. Steven is also the movie critic for the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the man behind a Tumblr blog about stars on bikes.

We begin by mourning the untimely death of paracyclist Matt Bradley, who was a guest on The Outspoken Cyclist last September.

Bill Humphreys, aka “Bike Guy” has racing roots that go back to the Raleigh days in the early 1970’s, becoming a member of the first American team to race in Europe. Lately, he’s been working on something called The Jersey Project, a photo history book devoted to cycling jerseys from teams and clubs in Europe and the U.S. Neither cyclists like Bill, nor jerseys like the ones in his book are being made anymore! Be sure to check out Bill’s excellent blog. John Campo, aka “Campocat” rounds out our show today with a free-wheeling conversation about music, guitars, and oh by the way, track cycling. John is a...
