Peter Weigel! And, it’s off to Connecticut for 6 short conversations with folks attending the iconic framebuilder’s once-yearly event! We chat with Peter first and learn about the event then… it’s the “cast of characters” in the following order: Jan Heine – from Bicycle Quarterly & Compass Cycles attending his 1st FFD Deb Banks – from Rivet Cycle Works in California (and the “hostess” with a small “h”) Carlos Pintos – from Ontario, Canada. He’s a flight attendant whose international travel schedule allows him to find French fendered treasures and ride all over the world. Corey Thompson –...

PPP is doing some impressive and important work to bring business, community, and cycling together in the Tampa-St. Pete area of Florida. Christine facilitates and helps businesses navigate the necessary labyrinth of the hows, whys, and wherefores of becoming a “bicycle friendly business” and help advocacy turn its ideas into realities. After our break, I have a long conversation with one of my all-time favorite sports’ heroes! When Julie Moss crawled across the finish line at the Hawaii Ironman in 1982, the whole world saw it on ABC Wide World of Sports....

On this particular morning, June 12th, Dave Lewis was driving his 55,000 pound bus down the same city street – so close that he clipped Mr. Hangeby’s front wheel and dragged him under the bus. Dan Hangeby died at the hospital a short time later. This past week, Mr. Lewis was on trial for the incident – but, not until a lot out outrage and investigation by local cyclists and Mr. Hangeby’s family. Jan Ransom is a reporter for the NY Times who covers the criminal justice system and I talk with her about this case. Her article, “”First Fatal Citi Bike...

With women smashing world records all over the place, I caught up with Vittoria Bussi – one of the best! On September 13th, she broke Evelyn Stevens’ 1-hour world record at 48.007km. She’s wicked smart, wicked fast, and actually one of the most self-effacing people with whom I’ve had the privilege to speak. Vittoria and I talk about the event, her training, and what’s next for her. Then it’s off to Annapolis, MD for a very quick conversation with Velo-Orange‘s Igor Shteynbuk. As he gets ready to pack it up and head up the eastern seaboard to Boston for the Builder’s Ball, Igor gives us a bit of background on the company, the products, and what’s new. Then, let me...

My first guest is a commercial airline pilot – he’s also a dad with two young children, and… he’s a new frame builder. He’s not fresh out of school – obviously – but, his frames are starting to get some traction in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada as well as reaching further west into the country. Matthew Manuel is the proprietor of Fluent Frames – and a great story as to how he came up with name – and we’ll talk with him in a moment. Then, just to break it up, we’ll head to Provence, France where I caught up with...

Tonight, we touch upon the relationship of cycling to NASCAR, LeBron James’ relationship with bicycles, Joe’s venerable Bridgetsone MB-1, and some ideas about today’s equipment. Then, it’s off to Washington, DC to speak with BikeWalk.org‘s Senior Associate and Program Manager, Mark Plotz about Bike/Walk/Places’ conference in New Orleans beginning September 16th. Begun ins 1977, Bikewalk.org jump started the advocacy movement in the U.S. There...

When I first learned about her, from a listener by the way, I thought, how it is possible that she’s an artist, a yoga instructor, and a bicycling coach and I didn’t know her? Well, I do now, and I think you’ll like her – a lot. She lives in NYC and along with her partner Kristen Phillips, runs The Art of Cycling NYC. Incorporating the mindfulness of yoga with the focus of skills, training, and all the areas of cycling that might not come naturally to any of us, Lisa and Kristen have developed some great programs for their clients. After a break, we’ll welcome Peter Cossins back to the show. Last year, we...
