Encore! They shouted… and, so while we take the holiday off this week, we bring you three of my favorite interviews! A name known to anyone who has ridden a bike for more than a few minutes – my interview with Richard Schwinn from December of 2013 is, as every conversation with Richard always seems to be, delightful. Then we hear one of my favorite stories from my favorite bicycle story-teller, Maynard Hershon. If you haven’t heard him tell the tale of the “Nice Wheels” – (and even if you’ve heard it on another show), it is a beautiful story and...

For our first show of the year, I wanted to take you far away from the cold and snow; so, we’re going to talk about summer time bicycle tours, a brand new triathlon, and chat with a frame builder who has been on my radar for a long time. Peter Williams owns Eastwind Cycle, a rather unusual touring company out of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Instead of picking a tour from a catalog, Eastwind tailors your Canadian tour exactly the way you want it. Whether it’s for two or twenty, Peter will offer up routes that include those sites you...
