If you are celebrating, I hope you have a happy day, don’t overeat, and find time to get out on your bike! Unless it’s snowing, then I guess it’s skis, sleds, and skates! This week, instead of two long conversations, the show is a sort of 4-part news-zine. We cover another perspective on the tariffs, a new event in Cape Cod, a really interesting chat about driverless cars and some of the philosophical aspects of programming them, and last but certainly not least, a first-hand report about the California Camp Fire and how it is affecting the people in Chico, the town...

Roland Della Santa. Roland has stuck with his beliefs and ideas about frame building for over 40 years and still produces his classic Della Santa frames in the “Italian” tradition – steel, lugged, and FAST racing machines. We discuss frames, forks, wheels, Roland’s relationship with Greg LeMond, and even our favorite musicians – Frank Zappa and Joe Bonamassa! As for food – what would you expect? Italian in the Tuscany tradition! Roland pulls NO punches about what he believes, how he builds frames, and what he thinks about today’s offerings in the bike biz. In the second half of the show, it’s...

Editor-in-chief of Bicycling Magazine Bill Strickland is my guest and we have a GREAT conversation about a lot of cycling stuff – from his book Ten Points to the state-of-the-magazine. Probably need to have a bunch more of these chats to get the whole picture! Then it’s off to Mallorca, Spain where I catch up with Guy Andrews. The founder of Rouleur Magazine has just launched the definitive book spanning the entire career of Greg LeMond. Yellow Jersey Racer is arguably the “coffee table book” gift for this holiday season. Guy found an amazing array of folks to cover each phase of Greg’s career – beginning in 1977! There are photos and commentary...

I like any season in which I can go for a bike ride (which turns out to be all of them, if I’m dressed right and sufficiently motivated). But looking out my back window today it occurred to me that without leaves to block the view, we can see the true structure of trees much more clearly. Currently, the Grey Squirrel Acrobatic Company is putting on a fabulous show for an appreciative audience of one. So, in the spirit of the season, we get right to the heart of a couple of folks doing interesting things in very different areas of cycling. First up is Liz Jose,...

This new ride, called VeloSano, will launch in July 2014 from the Cleveland Clinic campus in mid-town Cleveland. You’ll be hearing more about VeloSano in the coming months, but you can get all the details today on The Outspoken Cyclist. After the news and a break, Diane settles in with author Bruce Barcott, who has just written an article about helmets for Bicycling magazine that has cyclists everywhere wondering, “is this foam hat really protecting me?” Bruce gives us a history lesson on helmet standards, and a peek at new technologies entering the market. Warning geek-out ahead!...
