Show #84 – April 7, 2012
Another week, and another Outspoken Cyclist with something for everyone. This week it’s Parks, Nutrition, and Ultra-Cycling.
Leading off is an interview with Jon Jarvis, Director of the U.S. National Park Service. Director Jarvis has served the NPS in various capacities for 36 years now, and he has an exciting perspective on the increasing role of cycling in the national parks, including news of a collaboration between the Park Service and Adventure Cycling.
After a short break, Diane speaks with Monique Ryan, MS, RD, author of Sports Nutrition for Endurance Athletes, 3rd Edition. This comprehensive book gives you the facts and figures you need to know about eating right to ride, run or swim during training and extended duration events.
And we wrap up with a conversation about an event close to home, and close to my heart: Calvin’s 12-Hour Challenge. Race Directors Larry and Christine Graham fill us in on all the details about this ultra-distance event coming up in the Dayton, Ohio area May 5th.
