Show #286 – February 20, 2016

Guests: USA Cycling’s Derek Bouchard-Hall; The Boston Bike Party

When USA Cycling went looking for a new CEO, they recruited a powerhouse in the form of Derek Bouchard-Hall.

Derek is a former pro cyclist, has degrees from Harvard, Princeton, and Stanford. He’s worked for Wiggle UK, the world’s largest on line cycling retailer, and brings a fresh perspective to what USA Cycling needs as the sport tries to regain some esteem, credibility, and balance.

My lengthy interview with Derek covers a wide range of topics and makes for a fascinating conversation.

We then lighten it up with two young and enthusiastic cyclists from the Boston Bike Party.

Every month, a group of riders invites the community to come and ride – in costume, with music, and ending up with food and drink. Greg and Aleta tell us all about it in the second half of the show.

So – sit back and enjoy my conversation with USA Cycling’s CEO Derek Bouchard-Hall.
