Show #163 – October 5, 2013
GUESTS: SUE KNAUP, JANET BUCKWALTER, BRYAN KEYS (AKA “PAT MCQUAID MUST GO”
As the seasons continue to transition, <em>The Outspoken Cyclist</em> brings you a trio of guests to help put the season, and cycling in general, in perspective. From low-tech, DIY componentry, to a look at eclectic, human-powered ways to cross the U.S., to the culmination of one man’s desire to see leadership change at the UCI, we’ve got you covered this week.
First up is <strong>Sue Knaup</strong> of <a title=”One Street” href=”http://onestreet.org/” target=”_blank”>One Street</a>, an international bicycle advocacy organization. Sue is a former bike messenger, former bike shop owner, bike mechanic, and lifelong advocate. A recent outgrowth of One Street’s mission is a new, durable, easy to manufacture shift lever with only six commonly available parts.

After a break, Diane welcomes <strong>Janet Buckwalter</strong>, who has compiled a new book of stories (including her own story) of people who crossed America in unusual ways, or under harsh conditions. The book is entitled <a title=”One More Mountain: Road Warriors Explore America” href=”http://www.smashwords.co
Lastly, in the wake of the recent UCI presidential election which saw the defeat of Pat McQuaid and the victory of Brian Cookson, we un-mask the man behind a Facebook page called <a title=”Pat McQuaid Must Go” href=”https://www.facebook.com
