Outspoken Cyclist Podcast
Podcasting Since 2010
Diane, in answer to your “question of the week”, my wife and I are signed up for a Pedal Across Wisconsin (PAW) Northwoods Tour in July. We’ll be riding our Burley tandem.
Incidentally, my wife is a retired RN and now teaches Gentle Yoga and Chair Yoga. She, recently, took training for Tai Chi for Arthritis and plans to start teaching that in March.
Diane: in your 3/28 Outspoken Cyclist podcast you were wondering out loud why cyclists wearing team kit of the pros was generally frowned upon.
I think it harkens back to wearing a replica Tour de France yellow jersey or World Championship rainbow jersey- if you didn’t earn the jersey, don’t wear it – or a replica of it. It’s an acknowledgement of the level of commitment and athletic achievement it takes to earn those colors.
Below is a link to a Cyclist UK article that takes a position in support of wearing team kit
Tucson, AZ and Canton, CT
Thank you for your message. And, thanks for reminding me of the World and TdF jerseys. You are absolutely correct. I will share the article you offered too. Finally – thanks for being a loyal listener. Diane
On your podcast on 5/16, you and your guest from Seattle were talking about bicycle infrastructure and the differing opinions on wether or not the loss of parking for bike lanes hurt or helped businesses. A recent study by Portland State addresses this topic and can be found at Bicycling Magazine or at PDX.edu.
