I have a lengthy conversation with the husband and wife coaching team of Braveheart Coaching, Simon Marshall and Leslie Paterson.

In addition to launching the T50, a new model, through a successful “Kickstarter” campaign, the discussion goes to their continued disappointment that USAT (U.S.A. Triathlon) won’t allow recumbent style bikes in sanctioned events. Then, there’s the wonderful chat with Jamie Swan. A frame builder’s frame builder, a mechanic’s mechanic, and much more, Jamie is known for his dogged commitment to an exquisite result in everything he does. It’s a delightful conversation. We also talk about the Webb Institute and what Jamie does there. Finally, a reminder to join the National Bike Challenge and record your miles. You can also record your voice for our NBC Stories....

This week we usher in May with Rob Gusky and the 2017 National Bicycle Challenge.

And, this week’s show is crammed with “stuff”. Besides the mention that Cleveland beat the wheels off Pittsburgh in the “National Bike Challenge” (by a mere 300,000 miles), Shinola also announced that a retail store would be built in Shaker Heights, Ohio opening fall of 2017. So, when we say Cleveland Rocks – we mean Cleveland Rocks! (And Rolls of course) (video is older, but lots of fun!) So, whose on our show? Well, let’s start at the beginning with the man who has probably forgotten more about recumbent bikes and trikes than I will ever know! Bryan Ball is the managing editor of THE recumbent...
