Show #368 – September 30, 2017

Guests: Ian Dille, Brian Jenks, Paul Maunder

Last show of September, and it’s a good one.

Ian Dille, author of The Price of Gold and The Cyclist’s Bucket List (in addition to about a gazillion articles for Bicycling, Outside, Men’s Journal, and more) and, who has been a guest in the past, has taken the lead in a new on-line digital content site for cycling –

Based in Austin, Texas, Ian will now be responsible for what is hoped to be “the” place to go for great bike racing – in all disciplines.

The subscription site is up and running; and, new content is going up daily.

Then, I snagged Brian for a conversation about a myriad of topics from our tandem to tubeless tires. It’s light, fun, and full of the kinds of information we discuss on a daily basis.

Finally, author Paul Maunder joins me from London, England to discuss his new book, Rainbow in the Mud; Inside the Intoxicating World of Cyclocross. It’s a delightful book, covering the 2015/2016 cross season leading up to the worlds.

It’s a three-fer today…

Show #332 – January 28, 2017

Guests: Denise Mueller; Brian Jenks; Gerolf Meyer

Welcome to this week’s show!

The January 7th and 8th weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal had a front page story about our first guest, Denise Mueller.

Now holding the title of the “fastest Woman on Two Wheels”, Denise, at the age of 43 rode a specially built bike behind a Range Rover and pedaled at 147.72 miles per hour to set her record back in September.

Denise is no stranger to cycling having won many, many titles as a teenager; then, life got in the way as it often does. Now, she has her sights set on breaking the OVERALL speed record next year.

It’s a great conversation – especially if you like speed!

Then, I’ve asked Brian to join me in the studio to chat with me in what I hope will become an ongoing feature of the show.

I don’t know anyone who is more thoughtful about the subject of bicycles from a wide range of perspectives and I’ve asked him to share some of that knowledge and expertise with us.

This week, he’s talking about cold weather riding and what to do with your bike. We are also opening up our FaceBook page and Twitter account to you to suggest topics you’d like covered in the future.

Then, we’re jumping the pond to Europe to catch up with someone I met at NAHBS in Denver a few years ago.

Gerolf Meyer is a cycling enthusiast – he’s a geographer – he’s also the host and producer of, wait for it…. a bicycle podcast in Germany! His monthly program Antritt, does a lot of what we do here and our conversation is fun. He’ll tell you the story of how we met and about the event he helps put together. (There are three shows in English in his podcast list – 2 with Charlie Kelly and one with Joe Breeze).

So, buckle up sunshine – let’s head on out to Carlsbad, California and talk with the “fastest woman on two wheels!”
